This probably doesn't change anyone's minds but I emailed Little Giant about the model and they said it they do not make a pump that is food grade or that can handle 200f+ temps. Then the e-mail even recommended to buy a March pump.
LG says Max temp 200f at 0 psi. That is concerning when I plan to run 212f at more than 0 psi. I spoke to a different manufacturer with a pump similar to the LG and they said the same thing...March is my best bet.
Food grade is definitely a concern....I'm just going to buy a march pump and be done with it.
For food grade and high temp applications I think march is a good bet.
I feel your pain, I've been following this from the beginning and almost chimed in a few times about how this was supposed to be a group buy not a March vs. LG thread. Sorry about the luck, but thanks for trying to do something good for the group.
