I got mine in the mail yesterday and got cam locks on and a few other fittings, I'v run star San and boiling water threw with no issues. I did not buy a valve for the output side wanted to see flow rate and threw my 1/2" line it moves more than I expected and so quite. A few photos:

12v pump

I did a quick flow test with the pump at a 53" headusing 1/2" silicone hose. It pumped 2gallons in 58 seconds. I removed the 1/2" mcmaster quick disconnect from the output side and ran the test again it moved 2 gallons in 54 seconds. I should mention that there is some restriction before the pump, another 1/2" qd with hose barb.

I think it is fine for the application I plan on. The only concern is the magnet on the impeller assembly. I am not sure it is rated for contact with food. I will be using this to recirculate water so acidic wort will not be an issue.

Here's my whirlpool setup. I made this before I saw the pump would work right off the valve. I have camlock on this so I can use it on other kettles. I put a ball valve on the outlet side but haven't really needed it since the thing primes easily and the flow isn't so great that it needs to be reduced.

By the way, does everybody else have a kitchen with a kettle and a battery charger (what I was running the pump with) sitting in it?

this is my solar pump in action, as you can see its very small but has no problem of pushing hot wort through 3/8in cfc, i will try to make a whirpool arm for next brewing but lokks like for efficient whirpooling i will have to bypass cfs. Overall im very happy with this $59 purchase
