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.

transfer pump for cider
Geremy P on Nov 21, 2020
Its a great little pump.
Robert T on Oct 29, 2020
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 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.
What is the head lift on this pump?

Worked great racking hard cider to a secondary fermenter. Wrench was missing from package but was promptly provided when notified. Will have to see how durable it is.

Makes racking much easier
I use 60 liter containers for secondary and cold wine storage. Gravity or siphon means really heavy lifting this pump makes it much easier and is easy to clean.

Poor Quality
Bought in 2018 moved 45 gallons and ensured throughout the process we kept the pump clean. In 2019 we tried to use the pump And after moving 20 or so gallons of wine the pump lost suction. I called customer service followed all of their troubleshooting steps and was told that not using the pump for a little under a year caused the pump to fail and was asked to purchase another pump head. I'm very dissatisfied with the quality of this pump if I'm expected for it to fail yearly..
