Does anyone know if this pump would work for homebrewing purposes?

http://www.hollandindustry.com/pump-...ump-p-179.html

There are 350GPH, 500GPH, 750GPH and 1800GPH options, although I'm not sure how many gallons per hour is ideal for brewing?

I assume at 350GPH that I'd be able to pump almost 6 gallons per minute?

What are you planning on doing with it? I think the reason people use the chugger and march pumps is that they work with boiling liquids, high temp stuff. Not sure if these would do that.

That's a good point. I've contacted the owners to see if the pumps are rated for higher temperatures.

Thanks.

Chugger is $99 this is $104. why not go with the one that many others have used before?

I doubt its food grade and rated for high temps. I use one of these for recirculating ice water through my immersion chiller.

Otherwise go with chugger, march or one of these http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f11/look...-input-317600/

I live in Canada. The Chugger pumps are closer to $150 here.
