March 809 pump
I have one of these for my AG setup and was wondering what others thought about these pumps? I have a lot of messing around to do with mine in order to get it to pump the wort from one keggle to another. I have a specifically hard time when all the kegs are about equal height with one another. What I normally have to do is drop the keg that I am transferring the liquid to, down on the ground and then get the pump as low as I can also. The pump has a hard time pumping the liquid up and over into the keg. Just wondering if this is just mine or others have problems like this also?

These pumps are awesome.

If you prime them properly, they are a dream. I open my valves going to the pump inlet and drop the outlet hose below source fluid level to allow the water/wort to flow and fill the hose. I then close the valve to lock the fluid in.

Turn the pump on and open the valve, it is primed. Takes me about 10 seconds.

Maybe I just need a little practice priming it then.
