Great pump

Review by Wayne on 5/30/2017

Brewing in my kitchen while in Japan. This pumped worked great at moving the wort from my kettle through my chiller tot the fermentation bucket without issue. I mention brewing in the kitchen because the pump is amazingly quiet. My wife was 15 feet away and could not hear it.

quiet, sufficient, yet slightly lacking

The pump is nicely constructed. However it claims to out pump my old chugger that recently died. It is a little slower, but much smaller and quieter in comparison. So its a trade off. I like the concealed fan and electrical components, but it does not pump as fast as my old. for example, my old pump could drain a 10 gal kettle being pushed through my 50' CFC in 10min, this pump does the same job in about 15min. not enough to return the product, but it does add a little time to the brewday.

Great deal on a powerful pump

Review by Jason on 6/30/2017

Don't waste your money on those cheapy little 12v plastic pumps, this one has real power, very high flow rate and is extremely quiet, almost can't hear it running. I haven't brewed with it yet but I've done lots of testing of my automated step mash/boiling setup learning the controller and checking for leaks. I will be fitting a ball valve on the outlet for throttling back the flow for recirc, then open it up fully to circulate PBW when it comes time for cleanup. The polysulphone head is very sturdy and I had no trouble threading on 1/2" NPT camlock fittings; if the threads ever start to wear I'll upgrade to the stainless head, but for right now I'll be spending that $30 on other equipment.

Great value

This is the 2nd one I purchased since I was so impressed with the fist one. Very quiet and a good value. You do need to order the SS pump head too. The plastic head seems a little weak and may break easily when installing fittings or valves.

Nice little pump

Review by Norm on 7/30/2017

I purchased this and the ss head, The plastic head has a bit more flow 2 to 3% more than the ss head. The inlet and outlet are cleaner (smoother) with the plastic head = a small amount more flow, but it is a small amount. The pump is silent; well almost silent. I have only started to use the pump, so only time will tell if it is a great deal but so far so good.
