Description

One of the best-selling homebrew pumps ever, no available with tri-clamp connections!

Gone are the days of  making do with a general purpose pump such as the March 815 and all the variant imported copies.  These pumps are cumbersome to disassemble, difficult to prime to get the wort moving, require the addition of a valve, a switch, and a proper base to hold the pump upright.  They also use noisy open motors that must be shielded from liquids.  All undesireable attributes for a homebrewing pump!  The team of homebrewers at Blichmann Engineering and our friends at March Manufacturing have created the RipTide™ to solve all of these problems!

  • High performance curved blade impeller and strong rare earth magnets deliver 7 GPM and up to 21ft of head pressure!
  • Carbon Fiber Dry Run Protection increases the life of your impeller and resists damage during accidental dry runs
  • Tri-clamp head connection fully disassembles in seconds for easy cleaning
  • 1.5" tri-clamp inlet and outlet connections
  • Totally enclosed motor is splash proof and super quiet (50 dB)
  • Integral linear flow valve for superior flow control - don't spend more money for a separate valve and fittings.
  • Integral air vent valve and partially enclosed impeller design allows you to prime the pump in seconds - no more frustrating air locked pumps!
  • Stainless steel head rotates 360 degrees to fit in virtually any installation
  • Large stable base with protective rubber feet keeps the pump from tipping
  • Convenient power switch on the base
  • Includes a 10ft long cord with plug (120V)
  • Base acts as a cord wrap for convenient storage
  • Assembled in USA from USA and imported components

Best pump ever!
Easy assembly and disassembly! Everything comes apart for thorough cleaning after every brew day. My other pumps are TD-5 and I had to also NPT to tri-clamp adapters. At the total cost of all the parts, this pump is only slightly more expensive and the ease of assembly and disassembly is worth every penny more. When I need a new pump, I won't even look at any thing else, I will easily buy another one of these.

Great pump
I am actually using it to pump milk from a bulk tank to a pasteurizer in a cheese making operation. It is perfect. The pump we use to fill our tank pumps over 30 gallons per minute and that just overwhelms the pasteurizer. The 7GPM of this guy is easy to control - we don't even need to adjust the flow valve.

It is also super quiet. I have pumped as much as 140 gallons at at time and it does not get warm! Love it.
