Great Pump

Review by Alex on 3/4/2017

Have wanted to get a pump for years and when I saw this pump, I did a little digging. Read some good things and went with it. Haven't used it on a brew day yet but I have tested it several time for transferring cleaner and star-san between kegs for cleaning. Pump is very quick and quiet. Very pleased with the quality considering it almost half the price of a chugger.

Perfect!

Ordered with the stainless head and immediately installed it. Secured all fittings and fired it up. Unit ran flawlessly! I'll be brewing another batch in a week or so and expect no issues. VERY STRONG PUMP! :)

Installed the Stainless steel head upon receiving. Ran it through the cleaning cycle for 30 minutes Friday and used it Sunday to recirculate a whirlpool and then thru the plate chiller. After the brewing session it was used to back flush the plate chiller and filter system with 160 degree hot water. It works quite and strong. Just be certain to mount it lower than the bottom of you boil kettle.

Good pump, works as advertised.

Installed with a ball valve on the output side of the pump head to control flow rates. This works fine and does not damage the pump due to it having a magnetic drive system. I had some issues with preventing leaks on the plastic ports but eventually just applied way more teflon tape than I normally would which seemed to fix the problem. Upgrading to the steel head might be a smart move in the long run. Pump max flow rate is pretty brisk and I would recommend using a ball valve as I stated above to control the rate for most applications. Overall I am pleased with the performance and hope that the reliability is there over the long term. This pump is considerably more affordable than it's competitors and performs better than the solar pump I was using before.

Great Pump

As literally everyone else has said, this is a great pump for a great price. Upgrade to the SS head right away... Things I didn't hear in other reviews were that this pump is much smaller and compact than the Chugger or March pumps; it is also nearly silent when in use as opposed to the loud competitors.
