Me too and figuring I wouldn't be surprised.

My purpose for a Grant does not even concern a stuck sparge. I have a direct fired RIMS system and I have repeatedly crushed my false bottoms. Even when slowing the output flow to a crawl. The false bottom I use is the Adventures in Homebrewing PICO style false bottom.
It looks like this: http://www.homebrewing.org/Stainless...ts_p_1010.html

When I say crushed, I mean crushed like a pancake. I just could not believe the amount of pressure that was being projected onto the false bottom. I use two pumps. One is a March 809 and the other is a March 815. Nothing out of the ordinary there. I have tried changing hose diameter, pump positioning, re positioning pickup tubes. Everything. A grant seems to be the only option to fix my current dilemma.

When your false bottom collapses that is due to the pressure being exerted on it. I would say that after it collapses you have a stuck mash/sparge. either way the grant would solve that issue (since they are the same issue).
