Do you guys think that the 12v pump would work well for setting up a Jamil style whirlpool IC? I think I might buy it for that purpose.

I have the high flow march 815 and I don't think it whirlpools hard enough.

YMMV.
I ordered two of each, they came in one box, and I can't tell which is which

Am I missing something??

The 12v pumps are definitely bigger than the 6v ones.

The one on the right in this picture is the 12v pump.

Does the larger (12v) pumps seem plenty capable for doing a single tiered brew system? I'm mainly looking for something to pump hot water from the brew kettle to the mash tun, then pump the wort back to the brew kettle. Think this one could handle it?

As with any application needing a pump, you'll need to look at your flow and lift needs and compare them to the pump specs...

that is definitely not what I got...


They are the same part number, with just a different voltage...
12v and 6v

Ah! Yes, I saw those too. Those are submersible, the ones I have are not, besides the bigger volume.

Submersible up to a certain degree.
