    Colonel, you're controlling flow with ball valve...does this seem to be a viable option or has
    anyone installed a dimmer or potentiometer? I'd consider these even if just for transfer as it
    takes fore...

    Here are some close-ups of the pump with my 1/2" camlocks from Bargain Fittings. Cleanup is
    really easy because I just flush it with hot tap water through both ends.

    Ordered mine should be here soon I plan to run it through its paces. I already have a March 809
    I would like to do a comparison (prob not much of one) but at least its a low cost option for

    Because these are 12vdc it would be simple to use a voltage regulator to control the speed of
    the pump. Since they are not magnetic drive I probably wouldn't adjust the flow with a ball
    valve.Great id...

    Hey everyone,I'm building a RIMS system and I'm looking for an affordable pump. Like a unicorn
    it just doesn't seem to exist. I have looked at March, chugger, and little giant. They all look
    great, bu...

    Thanks all for posting the pump links and video/ comments. After following the link and looking
    around ebay, I found the following pump that appears very similar, but has a better output and
    is cheape...

    I finally had a chance to use this little pump for a brewing session and I couldn't be more
    pleased.I've posted some pictures below with my 1/2" camlocks installed and a short video clip
    of this pump ...

    Just thinking about this, random thoughts rolling around in my head. I could see this switches
    wired in for multiple pumps in a system or if you were going automated SSRs wired in and
    triggered from ...

    How are you planning on powering it for normal usage or are you just going to use the battery?I
    have an SLA battery charger, so I will probably keep using the battery. If it doesn't last long
    enough t...

    I want some intel about this pump too. Would throttling the output/input negatively affect the
    pump? And are those fittings hard to find? Would you have to gravity feed the lines for it to
    work?The pu...
