Description

The ultimate pump for home winemaking use. Self-priming (will push air) so that it can draw out of a tank. Gentle diaphram action so as to not "beat up" the wine. Made of food-grade, NSF approved, materials polypropylene and santoprene, so no metallic interaction with wine. Pumps 3 gallons per minute. Flow can be restricted with an inline valve positioned on the outflow side. Self-regulating motor is designed to temporarily shut down, and then turn back on, when restriction pressure exceeds pump capacity. Has a heat limitation of 125 degrees Fahrenheit so cannot be used in brewing applications.

Pump is equipped with 1/2" Male NPT posts on the inlet and outlet. Does not include the plastic barb fittings you will need to purchase separately. Please see the "You Might Also Need" section below for our recommendations regarding which fittings to attach to the pump.

Please Note: The diaphragms in this pump are very sensitive to sediment and particulates and can be damaged if any solids are taken into the pump head. We recommend using an Inline Pre-Filter (FIL26) if you think there's a risk of sucking up solids with your inlet hose (pumping during pressing, for instance).

Usefull but not robust.
A reasonable pump for low volume (750 L) racking. Not good for moving free wine from the fermenter even with a screen filter on the suction side of the pump. I’m on my second pump. The diaphragm went bad after 4 years. Would be nice to be able to replace the pump only at a reasonable price.

Awesome pump
Works great. Plug it into an outlet on a switch because it comes on automatically when hooked up to power. If you want you can get a resistor to change the speed but I've found that it foams very little, even less than my old diaphragm pump I got from this site with variable speed option, and it doesn't electrocute me like the other one does either!

Aerates beer, very difficult to control flow
I see there are lots of positive reviews for this pump, but I have not had the same positive experience using this pump. I have had this pump for almost 6 years now and am just now getting to giving it a review. Here is what I liked and what I didn't.

Likes:
- Self priming
- Good power/flow of liquid
- Seems well made and motor is covered and protected from liquid

Dislikes:
- Diaphragm pump makes it very very very difficult to control the flow of liquid. I use a ball valve on the outlet and you really cant throttle this pump lower than about 15%-20% from maximum. If you do the pump shuts off. It has a pressure sensor that cuts out at a certain restriction value.
- Churns the liquid - The diaphragm cause a pulsing action in the liquid. Foams the beer instantly.
- Aeration: No matter how tight I crank the fittings and hose clamps, air gets sucked into the pump. I have tested this in a regular bucket of water to see if the bubbles I was seeing moving beer was just the CO2 coming out.... it was not... the outlet of the pump at full open throttle of the valve had air bubbles in it. I took the pump apart, looked for worn o-rings or something else that would let air in to the pump, but could not find anything wrong. The aeration issue is the biggest issue for me. I wanted to use this pump to move fermented beer up and out of my chest freezer to kegs. Just never could get this process to work

Maybe I just got a bad pump. Who knows, but for me this pump has been nothing but headaches.

Update on Review: 7/29/17

I decided to take a part the pumping head to see if there was anything causing the issues I was having using the pump. To my surprise, one of the diaphragms was clogged with what looks like hop leaves. I cleaned the pump head, put everything back together and the issues I was having with air getting into the outlet seem to be resolved.

I would change my rating to a 3 for this pump. Its really only useful for clean, finished beer/liquids. Any small particles getting into the pump can cause it to have issues and will require disassembly and cleaning, which is time consuming and is likely going to happen in the middle of using it to transfer liquids.

Terrible plastic threading
The inlet side of my pump was missing some threading upon opening. I was unable to thread it properly because of this. I returned it and went with a stainless steel head pump instead.

Good pump
Good transfer pump. No spred control so be careful of oxygenation.

Great for transferring into sankey kegs.
I got this primarily to transfer beer out of a 55 gallon barrel that my club has into kegs. I first used it to transfer 10 gallons from the Speidel 60L (FE720) fermenter sitting on the ground into a sankey keg and it worked like a charm. Sankey kegs can be a pain to get beer into, but this made it simple. Perhaps the easiest transfer I've ever done.

No more priming
One reason why I love this pump...no priming no priming no priming.

good pump
Pretty good pump. Used to transfer beer. Doesn't have control for pumping speed so can get oxygen if not careful.

Snapped Upper Housing
I have successfully used this pump for two years and think it is very functional, even though I had to mount it on a board and install an on-off plug and switch for ease of use. During my latest use it became necessary to move the pump a few inches. The hoses were connected and I moved it without disconnecting them. During the move the Upper Housing of the pump snapped off near the hose connection and will need to be replaced. I feel the Upper Housing design should have anticipated such movement and been designed stronger.
