Just got my pumps today... Pretty fast shipping I would say for free. Looks good so far but I'm on lunch at work so I'll have to check them out later.

I'd also like to see how others are mounting their pumps. I use mine inline with a BIAB setup, but I've had problems with priming and am thinking that it should be mounted below my kettle like most people have their March pumps.

If there is anywhere for air to get trapped you'll have issues with prime. I put my pumps inline of my pot outputs and I haven't had an issue. The occasional blast of steam will come through but it doesn't stop pumping it just pushes it right on through.

Plus if your hose is short enough and attached properly it should offer some support to the pump instead of dragging it down.

Here's a picture of my set up. Got it inline and its a ebiab recirculation system using a rtd probe. Control box not shown. But the pump is freaking sweet.

Hi, i reacently ordered my pump from us solar pumps. And i found this ac adapter laying around (it says the output is 12v and 3A) and i was wondering if its compatible for running my pump. It's the 12VTSS11.5L - 3.00 GPM / 11.5 LPM - 9.80 Feet / 3.0 Meter Head

12 Volts - 1.25 Amps - 15 Watts Solar.

Please let me know if i need to get a new adapter.

Cheers!

connected and tested my pump and it works great with the adaptor that i posted a week ago. here's a quick setup of hoy i had it connected. I was recirculating the water to see how much flow rate there was and it's what the description says. (3gpm) hooked up a switch and works great too to turn it on and off
