I've got old power adapters all over my house. I'm pretty sure I will find one I can use. If not, I'll get a cheap one from ebay.

Wouldn't small size be fine (desirable?) for sous vide? Unless the guy was cooking many dozens of bags or something...

I'm using the 12v one....works amazing for how small it is. I use it to recirc the water in my HEX. But I read that its not rated above 120f(I think,if I recall correctly) so I mounted a bulkhead fitting to drain the HEX into the pump, then back into the other side of the HEX.

It looks like it says that it is rated for 100 Celsius. Should be good to go for anything we want to do.

Oops! I forgot with the addition of a new pump, I need to purchase camlocks and more silicone tubing! The spending never ends!

Do you think I could use this to transfer water from my brew kettle up and inside my igloo cooler? Wasnt sure if it was limited as far as how high it could move liquids.

It's only rated for a 3' lift and 29 gal/hr.

Are we talking about the same pump? I was looking at the 108 GPH model.
Just found the specs that say Cut-off: 3.5M (10ft) @12V.
I am assuming this is the lift? So 10 ft.?
