Mark ii Wort pump

Review by Pat on 3/28/2017

I purchased this pump with the stainless head. It works great for moving liquids alone but any back pressure seems to stop it cold. I have a plate chiller I have used many times with other pumps but this one seemed to have real trouble pushing the wort through. It took me over two hours to cool 10 gallons with lots of stops and checking thinking maybe something was clogged. (normally takes me 15 minutes) It would only run at a trickle with my plate chiller. My other pumps have no problem with my plate chiller. This was only my first try with this pump and I plan to try again hoping for better results..

Wow great price!

Great pump! I suggest getting the additional stainless pump head just because it's a good insurance policy. Pump is very quiet and sturdy. No problems on a test run. I also suggest getting tri clamp fittings or something similar. I used hose clamps designed for silicon but a pain unscrewing them to move them around. You won't regret this purchase!

Fittings will work fine with standard US pipe thread.(NPT) The trick is to stretch the brass fitting going onto the pump first. Just install your fitting onto a 1/2" NPT nipple a few times and then it goes right on. Use teflon tape. I am using the default plastic head that came with the pump. Great transfer rate for such a small unit. Super quiet. Great Price.

This pump is a good buy

Ordered this pump, and every thing needed to operate it (stnls head, ball valve, tubes) for about $150, all in. I mounted to a 1/2" sheet of plastic (from our local hockey arena). This pump is quiet and moves liquid FAST through 1/2" tubing. I throttle it back with the ball valve. So far, I've only run Starsan but I have high expectations for moving wort. Still trying to figure out best way to prime it. Right now, I use a turkey baster to flood the head and tubes. The tubes are four foot sections and I hope they are long enough in execution. My hope is that this pump will outperform gravity on brew day. If not, then I've wasted $150.
