The magnetic drive acts as a clutch allowing the user to put back pressure on the pump to slow down flow. Since it is magnetic drive, it is not self-priming, you must put the pump under the level of the liquid source.
The pump is brewer friendly and includes a bracket so that it can be mounted and a 6' power cord with plug wired in for easy use. This is a tough little pump with a 1/25 hp, continuous-duty 1.4 Amp motor which can be run non-stop for extended periods. This pump has a maximum flow of 7.2 gpm with a maximum head of 12 feet. For an example of typical usage: with a head of 6' it will pump 3.25 gpm and with an 8' head it will pump 2.5 gpm. 1/2" mpt fittings on the outlet and 3/4" mpt inlet. Materials in contact with solution are Polysulfone, 316 stainless steel, silicon rubber, Raton and Teflon. Shaded pole, thermal overload protected, single phase motor is fan cooled. Will handle internal pressures to 150 psi. Max pressure the pump can produce in a closed system is a little over 5 psi. Face unscrews and rotates at 90 degree intervals to adjust to your application. To restrict flow place a ball valve on the out flow of this pump. The center inlet port allows for easy draining and cleaning of the pump. Side inlets cost slightly less, but will allow wort and water to sit in the bottom of the pump and mold overtime. The center inlet makes it easy to clean and use. This is why you see the center inlet port pumps in use at all professional breweries.

A couple tips: Plan on mounting it real low in your system. As the description notes it is not self priming so if you can "flood" the pump with gravity's help before switching it on you will have an easier time of it. Also make sure you mount it so that the inlet is on the bottom (i.e. incoming liquid goes up into the pump) and the output comes out on top. The reason why is that you need any air bubbles in the line to easily find their way out of that pump. If you mount it sideways air bubbles will not purge as easily and as they accumulate the pump will slow down, stop, and otherwise give you trouble. If you keep it full of liquid it will work like a charm.
I'd also recommend putting a ball valve at the output, even if you use quick disconnects, for flow regulation. This is another nice thing about the way the magnetic drive works, having the flow restricted by a ball valve that's partially closed is no trouble for it, but absolutely essential for tasks like lautering where flipping straight to full bore will probably suck grain into your kettle.
Feel free to leave a comment with any questions or click Yes if helpful!
As for the pump - it works great now - can easily regulate the flow to full speed, a stream or off without hurting the pump. I highly recommend this product!
I pump at about a 4ft vertical and filled a 10 gallon hot liquor tank in about 40 seconds.
You can't beat this pump fpr price and ease of use.
