Here is another version that looks similar to the $20 black pump but may have NPT threads. I asked this question

Dear youngnicelady,

Are the Pipe Threads NPT or BSP

Got this reply:
Thanks for your message.
It is NPT standard.
Regards.

$20 pumps, beige - coated magnet ; black - exposed magnet
What about using it with a CIP ball?

I got the beige one from e-bay and used it for the first time yesterday. I have a 1/4" CFC and it would take forever to chill with gravity. It would take to the order of 30-45 mins. With the Pump now it does it somewhere in the neighborhood of 15min. Saves me quite a bit of time but it does not seem to generate a high head pressure. But for $20 I'm happy!

why did chuggers go from 100 to 150 usd in the span of one month? I wonder if I put two of these small pumps together how would it work? I am looking at a cfc with a prechiller, but actually I only need to pump the wort, so only though 25 ft of the CFC, and then back up to the boil kettle. I am seriously thinking about this option.

The $100 ones are plastic head, the $150 are stainless. The plastic ones are roughly $85 shipped this month.

I cnt seem to find any of the plastic ones anywhere. I also dont think the plastic ones are so inferior to the SS.

Just want to push wort maybe 30 feet or so, 25 feet through a 3/8 CFC and 5 feet or so to recirculate
