Product Description

March Seal-less Pump - High TemperatureOne of the best tools youll buy for home brewing, this high-resistant pump works great for wort or hot liquor transfer. A must for serious home brewers.Seal-less Magnetic Drive 1/25 hp pumpIncludes 6-ft. power cord1/2" NPT (National Pipe Thread) fittings on both inlet and outletHandles temperatures up to 250 F and internal pressures to 5 psiPumps a maximum of 6 gallons per minutesSingle phase motor is fan cooledNote: Running the pump dry can damage the unit. Because this pump is not self-priming, we recommend placing the pump below the level of the liquid source, and in a dry location as the housing is not waterproof. To restrict flow place a ball valve on the out-flow of this pump. Blichmann QuickConnectors are highly recommended. Do not cross threads when attaching the fittings.

Excellent little pump. Bought this to supplement our homebrewing operation and it performs beautifully. Powerful and high flow rate made this a great addition for us. The only down side is that it is not sealed so you have to watch spilling anything on it. Also, since it's not self-priming, you have to make sure to put it below your liquid. Other than that, awesome pump for the price.

The pump works great once you figure out the proper position to mount it so it will prime correctly. However these are not sturdy and a dent to the motor end of mine killed it. This could be forgiven and I could chalk up its short life to my not being careful enough and buy another one if only I hadn't discovered that you can buy the same exact pump from Chugger for $50 less.

OK, this is a staple of homebrewing. I get that. I have one and use it religiously. My one complaint with this is, why doesn't it have a purge valve?? It's prone to cavitation yet doesn't have a valve to help this issue. Arguably I could just install one but still.. it really should have one imho. It's very, very easy to clean although if you use it properly you shouldn't ever need to clean the thing.

I did doc 2 stars based on the lack of valve but it;s a good pump through and through. I just hate cavitation, it sounds nasty and renders the pump useless. It's not my setup. I'm a member of a large brew club and it's a known issue that has various work arounds.

Pros -
Works great,
Easy to clean,
Plenty of power,

Cons -
Cavitation!!
No purge valve!
Cheap screws on head vs bolts (yeah being picky but I only really had one con).

I've been running this for nearly a year it and it's held up nicely. Pretty much no maintenance besides running water through it at the end of a brew day. I had some problems with cavitation, but I solved this by putting the outlet side pointing up to get the bubbles out of the pump.

Works well, once a plug is attached. It worked well with my beer equipment once attachments were found. It had a good pace for pumping. It is a strong purchase for those who need a pump that is more industry but useable by a consumer.

While not a long term review, I can say that this pump has met my needs so far after two homebrewing sessions. It's pumping my strike water from my kettle to my mash tun and then helping to recirc (whirlpool chill) and then transfer to the carboy. A+++
