Description

When siphoning is impractical or too time consuming, the home winemaker needs a pump. We helped pioneer the use of diaphragm pumps as an economical, gentle method to move small volumes of wine.


This new take on an old favorite includes speed control. Now you can dial in the flow from 0 to 3 gallons per minute. Gentle, economical, flexible, and wow are all adjectives we would use to describe the performance.

When this pump was first introduced to us, we loved the idea, but had concerns that the speed control would compromise the longevity of the motor. We build much larger pumps (our ChunkyPumps for commercial wineries) and normally you need a $700 frequency drive to control motor speed. However, we kept in touch with the manufacturer and after three years in which he has not had any issues, and after our own testing, we are now sold that this pump performs as promised. The manufacturer offer a 1 year warranty.

A diaphragm pump works by moving wine through one pulsating diaphragm into the next. In this design, as opposed to a centrifugal pump which has a small head spinning at high speeds, the shear value is small meaning the wine is not as "beat up". A diaphragm pump is self-priming, meaning that it will "pump air" creating suction that will pull liquid out of your container and into the pump head. This makes the pump very easy to use for the home winemaker.

  • This pump comes with 1/2" barbed ports for easy connectivity. 
  • Comes with 6' tubing on both sides.
  • 110 Volts, 0.5 Amp, 60 Hz.

Includes a built-in pre filter to help prevent solid materials from entering the pump head and potentially damaging the diaphragms, which would prevent the pump from being able to move liquid. The clear plastic top of the pre filter unscrews for cleaning.

I used my pump for the first time to move ten gallons of beer to the kegs and it foamed up bad I’m afraid that this batch will be oxidized. Is there a fix for the foaming problem?
Russell Chance on Jul 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Are you sure that was air making the foam. In a closed loop system where does the air come from? It is much more likely that the foam was CO2 being pulled out of solution due to the pump suction.
It says in the product description that the pump can handle liquid temps up to 212F with silcone tubing, but the instruction manual says that liquid temps shouldn't exceed 130F. Can this pump handle temps up to 212 with proper hosing?
Bill Rittenour on Feb 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, as long as you replace the tubing that comes with the pump with tubing that can handle over 212 degrees.
What is the lift power of this pump (How many feet?). I plan to place the pump on the floor and the input will suck the wine from the barrel on the floor and the output will go to my stainless still tank at 6 to 7 feet high.
Milton Tolikas on Oct 4, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Milton - under ideal conditions, the max lift is approximately 15 ft. However, many factors come into play -- such as the type of liquid being moved, the temperature of the liquid, and the amount of solids in the liquid -- which determine the max lift of the pump on a case by case basis. This is why we do not list a max lift in the description. You should have no trouble in the set up you describe, although we would recommend doing a test run with water to see how the pump performs with your system.
I have read the instructions and would like to know how to properly clean this after transferring wine? I am asking as this will be my second pump as my first pump seems to pump sludge from within the pump.
Kathy Dunn on Nov 13, 2022
BEST ANSWER: What I do after I rack the wine is rinse with a couple gallons of clear water , than I circulate with a couple of gallons of Sterox K cleaner for a couple of minutes. Then rinse again with clear water and then circulate Star San sanitizer for a couple of minutes.
Then drain all liquid out
for a couple of minutes
How often should I change the filer if I am using it to move finished beer from two 6 gallon carboys to Corny kegs about once every other month?
martin smith on Apr 3, 2021
BEST ANSWER: The "filter" is a ring of SS mesh. Good for keeping grape seeds and skins out of the pump. The head disassembles and it can be washed clean. You should not have to replace the "pre-filter"unless there is physical damage.
There is a clip on the body of the pump, that secures the In and Out fittings. Slide it towards the back of the pump to release the fittings. The wire ring in the "filter" can be tricky to re-assemble, but patience is all it takes.
Would this pump be appropriate for pushing RO waste water through my plate chiller to cool wort? My plan would be to have the pump resting on top of a 50 gallon water storage tank about 30” above the tanks drain valve (supply water) and about 4’ away from the chiller. Essentially, the water would need to flow up 30”, horizontally 4’, then down and up another 30”. Want to make sure the pump is powerful enough for the task. I like the fact that it’s self priming (the pump would be sitting above the water level in the tank) and that it has the ability to regulate the flow as I never run my chiller water at full blast. Also, is there an on/off switch? Thanks.
Ken Yorke on Mar 17, 2021
BEST ANSWER: It will work over this distance, but the key is how fast you need the water to flow and if the waste water is free of any silt. I never runit faster then 2 gallons a minute and any silt can damage the diaphram.
Will pumping an alkeline water solution from barrel damage the pump?
John DiMeo on Sep 4, 2021
BEST ANSWER: I don’t know. Mine was adding air in the lines so I don’t use. Now I rely only on gravity
Can you use this to push wine through a Ferrari gravity feed filter?
RANDALL P OKON on Nov 10, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I'm not sure - the pump is not aggressive and it provides a slow steady flow for finished wine without aerating it.
What is the head lift on this pump?

Didn’t believe it would be this good
Initially leery of a transfer pump due to possible agitation & oxygenation.
This unit is super smooth with consistent flow.
Joint system is very smart for cleaning.
Filter is nice touch, but I made a coarse pre filter at the intake pipe to exclude seeds and skin fragments that snuck in during pressing. The stock filter did do a great job collecting fines and as was very easy to clean.
Racking time was reduced enormously, as was the commotion.
Only concern is the diaphragm life, seasonal storage, and what happens if it fails mid-drain. (Back to the motorcycle lift for the 100l can, but I have a 200l now too…)

I like the variable speed control. Parts are easy to remove. Clean up is a bit more, but worth it IMO. I think it would be better if mounted/secured in position, as it moves around as your trying to set your siphon hose… I made a rookie mistake… I was running the pump under the faucet to move water through the diaphragm area got shocked and popped the GFI. LESSON LEARNED! I imagine there is a Warning in the instructions, that i neglected to read. Over all a decent pump. I would recommend it for a small home hobby.

Great pump.
Great pump. It is very quiet, simple to set up and sanitize. It is simple to operate as well with the built in speed control/on off switch. The only drawback is that you have to set the speed up to a fairly high setting just to get it started. Once started you can easily slow it to the speed needed. The rubber feet are a nice touch as well, keeping it from vibrating and moving.

I had a smaller pump on a superjet filter and this variable speed pump was a great replacement for it. I really liked that I didn’t have to lift the carboy to do a gravity transfer.

I just bought my 2nd pump from more wine. It works great except that after the second use,, the filter screen came apart at the seam. Thought it was supposed to last longer. Is there any warranty on this?
