I really do not have a right answer for you . I get good efficiency but I would not have a clue what % it is as I do not even know how to figure that out . I just brew and drink . My beers are always on target so I guess it is good . I usually run my sparge till there is no color left and is running nothing but water and always hit the target .
It only has about a quart of dead space and if I tilt the tun it gets almost all of that out .
the line is about 39 inches . I think it was 4 ft to begin with . I bout at home depot in the dish washer parts section . do not know what it cost . I think
Ace has one cheaper .
the lid is from ace . Couple of bucks I think . they have buckets and lids and they are food grade . Check for the food grade sign on bottom of bucket .
The pipe is 1/2 inch and got it at ace as you can buy it by the foot . Just there to add support to the lid since it has all them holes drilled in it .
Got the Twee at Ace also I think .
