Did you buy it from ebay:usapumps or directly from chuggerpumps.com? I am very close to getting one of these myself and was going to get it on ebay since it was a little cheaper but he does not have any listed right now.

I doubt you will find anyone here that has used that pump because the maximum media temperature is 140 degrees F. The 40 PX version is really only good for use as an aquarium pump.

This link is for a PX pump, there is no F in the model number.

Thanks for pointing that out Nate. I think he will be dissapointed to find out that his "cheap pump" is a non "F" version and only goes to 140*F. I bet the "F" version is quite a bit more expensive than the regular version. I hope he doesn't expect to get the "F' version of this pump for $125. I guess he didn't read his own post.

Just make sure you buy the "F" version if you plan on using it in your new commercial brewery. I wouldn't use of a pump rated for 140* at temperatures of 175* and above for commercial brewing. I would speak to your lawyer partner. I sure wouldn't want to expose my new company to that type of liability. Not in this litigation happy society.

This is the same **** that happened with little giant pumps. All you haters said it won't work and blah blah blah. Look now. Everyone wants a little giant. I am just offering an alternative company. I know what the link is showing. I was just using it as a reference. If you read the rest of my post you would have seen that I was researching the materials and contacting the company. Just like every other pump manufacturer including march and little giant, they have different heads. The guy I wrote to said the price difference is slight. Though in his broken chinglish. I am waiting back on a qoute from them to purchase direct.

Don't worry I am done with this conversation. I will not post back what I find. It is clear you are not interested in new products and alternatives to your craft. I will keep the results to myself.
Look bud, you opened your own can of worms by posting the link to a product that is only rated to 140 degrees, then telling me I didn't read my own post when I called you on it. I really don't give a rats ass what you do, but if I were in your shoes I would dot my i's and cross my t's when making something for public consumption.

Stainless replacement heads for march pumps are now available on ebay for $49. The Chugger Pumps guy told me they have exactly the same performance as the march heads.

I am going to buy one this evening. I will post how it works when it arrives.
