Default Little Giant 5-md-hc

Hi guys,

I've just won this pump on Ebay,
What do you say, is it suitable for brewing?

my only concern is that It's rated for only 200F.

Royi,
Israel

Yeah it looks fine, but I don't know if I would run boiling wort through it. Maybe only use it for the mash process?

Yes, it's perfectly OK for brewing. The 200 F specification limit is for fluid lines under pressure and it has to do with the strength of the pump components when exposed to high temperatures. We home brewers operate these pumps at very, very low pressures so it really isn't much relevent for our application.
