Does anyone know if the centre inlet pumps available in 220V versions?
I live downunder so need a 220V version to use on our 230/240V supply and I would much rather have a centre inlet than inline it would prime a whole lot better. The internal threads could be drilled out if you are worried about threads in your wort but there are probably many more threaded connections in your system anyway.
Getting a bit OT one of my mates lent me his March pump and I made up a little stand for it out of some stainless scraps he had. I installed an elbow on the inlet of the pump with the pump outlet vertical. We used it last weekend and he said that it had never ever worked as well as it did on the brewday.
I have just made a 150L copper kettle (40 US gallon) and we made a 130L batch of a blonde ale for International tech a friend to homebrew day. There are some more pics on my brewclubs website
if anyone is interested.
Cheers from the land downunder
