My pumps in a toolbox build
 
5 Attachment(s)
I'm planning on building an electric brewery based on Kal's build, but for various reasons, I can't start it yet. So I decided to build a toolbox with two pumps to use later with my brewery. Plus putting them in a toolbox will allow portability.

What is that box (maybe a junction box?) in the middle?

very clean design but how difficult is it to get the pumps out and apart for the occasional thorough cleaning? Most of us mount the pumps with only the motor inside the box to be able to take them apart. Also any leak could be really bad.

Where are the valves for flow control?

They come out pretty easily if you remove the fittings on the front. I was going for a clean look. My OCD was coming through. If I have problems, I'll just have to redo it.

Sitting in the tray. They connect with camlocks.

Where did you get that cover next to your switch? I've been looking for something like that to use when installing a computer fan in my toolbox.

I got those at West Marine. We have a store nearby, but you can get them online.
