Not being concentric on the inlet and outlet vs the hose bibs has nothing to due with the pump performance at all.
With any production items small details to improve the item, pump head in this case can be done yourself, removing sharp edges as well burrs and metal flashing a Dremel can take care of quickly
I should know as I was lucky to have a SS head Chugger pump shipped to me free as shipping paid by Chugger. What more can one ask? I have respect for Chugger with this great offer. There may be issues why we do not see Chugger pumps available on ebay anymore, time will tell as that SS head is a step forward vs plastic headed pumps. I hope to see these SS heads offered in the future, I broke a March 809 head a stupid moment on my part. Don't forget the March HF impeller upgrade that's available will fit Chugger and March, good things come to those that wait.
