Default Where are all the Chugger Pumps?

When I started researching for my brew rig, I came across Chugger Pumps as a good option to get my pumps from. I wasn't ready to get them at the time as I wanted to my keggles built first. Now, I am at the point that I could order pumps, but the Chugger site as well as their facebook seems to have been deserted for quite sometime with no information on when another batch will be up for sale. Does anyone have any insight on this, or is there any other alternatives that are in the same price range for the SS heads?

That's it, but I can't find that link through the main page. I think they took the link down since they are out.

They've been out of stock for a while and when they are in, they tend to sell out quickly. Also, they seem to be redesigning the pump head.

Farmhouse Brewing Supply sells them as well, when they can get them:

If you need to finish your brew system now, I wouldn't wait.

They are being listed on Rebel Brewer as well, but they've been out of stock for weeks now.

The Chugger Pump guys suck at actually selling things. Their website was horrible, completely nonfunctional, so I called them on the phone. "Oh, you want to talk to Jim. He's not in right now. He'll be in later. Leave him a message and he'll call you." Yeah, he never called.

Tried to leave them messages through their website. Couldn't even get that to work.

I like the idea of buying a pump with a SS head, but these guys are really making me reconsider that idea.

I wouldnt and didnt wait. I was in the same problem as you and I ended up buying a march and couldnt be happier. Its kind of rediculous that a company will go ahead and offer something and then not be able to back up their offering. "Put their money where their mouth is" if you will. Trying to get in contact with them is a joke.

I still have a little bit of time as I need to build my controller, but I just think it's crazy they won't even answer anyone.

Yeah, those lazy bastards!

It is a terrible problem to have so many people who want to buy your products that you cannot keep it in stock.

It sucks that they are missing out on potential sales, but I am sure they are doing what they can to get them in stock.
