Great Product - Even Better Service

Review by JJ on 5/1/2021

WB has old fashioned great customer service. You order something it goes out the same day, what a great company. The Riptide is a superb product, made in American product, well constructed and quiet as as church mouse, the old saying goes. Would buy again for sure.

Great Pumps!

Review by Josh Wade on 1/16/2019

These pumps are BEASTS! I got a pair of them to replace some old chugger pumps that were having constant impeller issues and I am not disappointed. The MT recirculation flow through my 50' herms coil has improved dramatically, which helps save time with the initial filling of the MT as well as cleanup time. The built-in linear flow control valve is also very nice to have. I still use a ball valve at my kettle inputs to initially slow the flow but I fine tune the flow with the linear flow valve. Please be aware that tightening the TC clamp too tight will cause the impeller to squeal at mid to high temps. It only needs to be tight enough to create a seal, do not over tighten... I took away 1 star because of the bleeder valve. It should have been designed better. The bleeder valve needs a towel and a bucket to avoid making a mess, but that isn't a huge deal for me. Just make sure you DO NOT bleed the air while the pump is on. Thats just asking for water/wort to be sprayed everywhere.

Worth it!

This is a great pump. Plenty of power, with several great design features specifically for the home brewer. I especially like that it's splash proof, has an on/off switch, is easy to clean, and has a highly adjustable output valve. The air vent valve is great for priming, which elegantly takes care of what otherwise is the real Achilles' heel of mag drive pumps. I love this pump. I'd sleep with it, if my wife would let me.

I ordered two Riptide Pumps for install with my HERMS System I just finished building out. I love these pumps, not only do they have great pumping rates and fully adjustable for moving or circulating my water and wort, they are also surprisingly quiet. I would definitely recommend this pump!
