That magnet doesn't look exposed to me. It seemed more like you had to remove the impeller before you get to the magnet. Since I'm no expert, can someone else confirm whether or not there might be an issue with this?

I Emailed and asked about the exposed magnet this is the response I got back.

The picture is not so clear, the magnet is coated and not exposed as some have suggested that have not seen one of these pumps in person.


Sincerely,

Scott Cretney

Interesting. Entered the giveaway. I'm happy with the one pump but if I can add a secondary to make a single tier I won't complain.

Please do! I'm just waiting for someone to validate that these pumps work before pressing go on 2 of them. They seem totally fine, and they're certainly getting a lot of talk these past few days.

Just waiting for mine to arrive. I will be brewing immediately after I receive them. Grains, hops, and yeast are waiting.

+Subscribed, I want to see a homebrewers opinion of this pump. Sure would make my automated system easy as I could run on same relays and not need SSR.

I'm particularly interested in how well it pumps from MLT to kettle, and I only have about 3 ft head.
