Product Description

This is the ideal brewing pump built by March Manufacturing. This pump is constructed of food-grade material, handles wort at boiling temperature, and takes back pressure (flow restriction). The pump housing is made from polysulfone because it is a tough, food-grade plastic rated to temperatures as hot as 250F, well above boiling wort temperatures. It offers many of the benefits of the ideal material, stainless steel, without the prohibitive cost.

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.

As for the pump - it works great now - can easily regulate the flow to full speed, a stream or off without hurting the pump.

This is practically THE standard for home brewing systems in the 5 to 15 gallon or so range. Many pumps will contaminate your wort with lubricating oils etc but everything in this pump is food grade and will not impart any flavors. It can also handle very high temperatures. When most people see the price tag they get sticker shock, then when they look around for something else they can pump 200-some degree acidic wort they plan to drink some day they come back to this one. That goes for stainless / silicone fittings too - the price up front hurts but it will serve you for many years to come. And when you DO finally tire it out the pump head is replaceable.

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.

Purchased this pump for brewing. When I first used it noticed it was leaking. Disassembled pump and o-ring seal was damaged I am assuming in original factory assembly. I do not fault the seller. Sent and email and got a next day reply that they would send me a new replacement pump head! The following day I had the replacement delivered and now have a working pump. I highly recommend this seller for their product availability and Great Customer Support!

I use this pump to circulate water through a wood fired heat exchanger; it heats water for a 500 gallon hot tub. I settled on this pump because it is not negatively affected by back pressure and is reasonably quiet. I have let it run for 4-5 hour stretches and it has continued to run perfectly.

Pump is outstanding. Absolutely no issues priming as I've read in other reviews and pumps at a great pace.
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.

I've been using this pump for some time in my brewing and it never fails. As long as its primed, it rocks.

Pump is probably great - it's the "standard" for homebrewing as has been mentioned before. However this is 1/2" in and 1/2" out rather than 3/4" in 1/2" out as specified in the description. Anyone want a 3/4" to 1/2" SS reducer? Will trade for 1/2" coupler ;-)

I built a three tier home brewing system and mounted this pump to move wort from the kettle through the counterflow chiller and then either back into the kettle (if I am recirculating) or into the fermenter (if I am chilling). I think the best two features of this pump are the fact that it is magnetically driven, so I can have the pump running but completely close the valve on the output side if needed (when I want to stop the flow temporarily) and the fact that the inlet port is on the bottom of the pump. By mounting the pump to my stand with the inlet opening facing down toward the floor, I can completely drain all of the liquid out of the pump at the end of my brew day. I have run a half dozen batches of beer through this pump and my new rig and I couldn't be happier. I highly recommend this pump!

While this is the go to pump for your home brewing needs there are some issues you need to be aware of in order to get smooth operation. Instructions are not included. Tesco recently switched from the 809 to the 815. They did this to increase the temperature reliability of the system which was having difficulty at temperatures above 180 degrees F. This pump is more powerful than the 809 which can cause problems for the home brewer, principally cavitation. Cavitation is when the pump pulls too strongly against the liquid and draws a vacuum. The solutions are as follows: first, put the pump at least 1-2 feet below the bottom of the brew pot (your "tank" of water). Second make sure your inline is at least 3/4" all the way along connection from the pot to the pump. The 809 could handle 1/2", this needs larger. Its the smallest diameter that matters. Third, if you take the pump apart to clean it make sure the outflow is pointing up, not to the side. If you put it to the side the outflow will exceed the inflow and the pump will starve itself. Finally, if you are still getting too much water you can restrict the outflow. Get a gate valve (not a ball valve) for the outflow and use that to restrict the water flow of the pump.
