Ok, i know that water and march pump exteriors dont go together too well.. and i have heard some people say that they put an enclosure around it to protect it..

I'm into multi-purpose gear, so if you're looking for something portable, this should fit the bill. It's not all that useful if you have a brew stand though.

Yours was the inspiration for mine. I think I gave you credit on my page, I hope.

edit: Yep, I did.

Wow, cool. I'm honored.

It truly is a great setup for anyone that is doing full boils without a permanent rig. I have used it at least a dozen times since I made it without a single issue.

I used a lexan sheet. Cut it down with 45deg edges and glue and caulk.
