I have found a great little pump on ebay and was wondering if anyone has ever used it.. It is food grade and magnetic driven and has free shipping all for only $17.

It looks like a version of the Little Tan Pump, but in black. Have a look in the Cheap compact-wort-pump thread, but I think this might be a new version of it.

The pump housing mounting is different to the Little Tan Pump, but the specs and the pump mounting on the motor housing looks the same. I'd guess it'd work at least as well as that one does (which is fine, although I broke the mounting points off of mine when I dropped the pump assembly).

I bought two and they just came in the mail. Still haven't had time to wire them up and test them out.

Yes indeed please keep us posted on how they work. I have convinced SWMBO into letting me upgrade so i am trying to put together and E-BIAB and i want to see how inexpensive it really can be compared to those i have seen that sell for around $1000.

I have these saved also. FWIW there's also knockoff topsflo's on eBay for 25$. These are larger, more flow, and seem to be stronger.

However they have been sold out for the last few weeks. I emailed a seller and they said should be back by the 9-10th. It might be better to wait for these...

I decided to order one. I decided that for 16 bucks with free shipping you cant beat it. plus i only need it for a E-BIAB so i think the flow rate will do me just fine. and it only has to travel a total of 3 feet.

Agreed on that. For the price, it is worth trying. I mean, I probably wasted that amount plus some buying things I grew out of by my third brew. At least this has purpose that will last a while.

I did just buy a chugger, but I too am considering this for the inside brewing operation.

I am buying one as well, just to see how it works. I'll have to see if I have a 12V charger laying around for the plug part.

I'm going to give it a shot. Just bought a lesser one for more: http://www.ebay.com/itm/390665472833 for $21.29. The one I bought is 109 GPH with 2M head, this cheaper one is 158 GPH and 3.8M head. It'll be nice to have a backup (not that cheap, overseas components ever fail!)
