Awesome, I will send a PM for the PDF when I'm at home since work won't let me into my PMs!
Also I think this is the first recorded photo of the inside of the pump I have seen. I have been looking for a photo of this as I have been wondering if everybody that has the "priming march pumps sucks" threads and have the outlet facing up (as I have seen on many rigs) are actually still getting a slight air pocket trapped at the top of the pump.
Cheers

Good write up. I ordered one Thursday night and anxious to try it out. My back is anxious as well as it is typically hurting good by the end of a 10 gallon brew day.

Thanks for the time and research always great to see a proper engineering based review won a product like this. WOuld love to see when Chugger intends on making these changes...and a stainless steel impeller would be fantastic.
