    Riptide Pump Position Relative to Source/Destination

    I need some clarification on what the optimal position of a Riptide pump (or any pump like it) should be relative to my liquid source and destination. I know the pump needs to be below the source but by how far? Is there a general rule of thumb I can use to have the optimal height and length of...

    Pump mount

    I just bought my first brew pump and am wondering if I need to mount it to something? I can find plenty of info about mounting to a brew stand, however this pump will be sitting on the ground. I can’t really find anything about that. I certainly don’t want to turn on a brand new March pump...

    So, one of my friends said I should join this site and ask my question because, and I quote, "If you can't find an answer on HBT, there isn't an answer." Anyway, what I'm looking for is a control panel that can manage not only dual 5500w elements simultaneously, but four pumps as well. I've...

    Grainfather Pump Question

    Hello Grainfather users, I just got a unit and have a few questions about using the pump. Since there's no tap, all the liquid in the unit needs to be pumped out (or dumped) after usage. I was wondering if when pumping liquid out, one should be careful that the pump doesn't run dry. Say, if I...

    Chugger Pump Bleed Valve Question

    I bought a pump to use for things like filling the HLT, recirculating the wort, etc. It dawned on me that once I fill the HLT, I will have a 5 foot hose filled with hot water. My thought is to add a bleed valve to the pump output. I would have the pump head - output flow valve - tee - bleed...

    Hands on Review of Mark II Wort Pump- and Flow Test Data

    I recently did a hands-on review of the Mark II wort pump sold at Pro Flow Dynamics. One thing people should be aware of is there is more than one "Mark II" or "MK II" wort pump out there, and it's easy to get the two crossed up. One version just has an IPX2 water resistance rating, meaning it...

    Medium show mead

    Hey folks used a wine pump and head space eliminator on a med show mead and I don't think anything got in my fermenter.
