This pump is not self priming so do not run the pump dry. The pump head can be rotated in 60-degree increments, allowing for 6 different pump head orienations. An optional stainless head, PMP501, can also be purchased.

Is this powerful enough to whirlpool 5-6 gallons?
Chris Germain on Jun 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: How vigorous do you want the whirlpool? It is not a vortex but it works. I use it for 15 gallons. Wish it was stronger but it works
Has this pump in 220v?
Lucas Elias Montibeller on Feb 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately, we only stock the 110v version of this pump.
What is a good way to throttle this pump? Is there an inline regulator, or can it be safely run at lower voltage with something like a variac?
Christopher Newport on Jan 16, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I only run mine at standard household current. There is no in-line regulator. To control flow, I use a standard ball valve on the output port. The ball valve works reliably for flows all the way to a trickle without clogs or airlocks. Hope this helps you.
How much power in Watts?
Christopher Newport on Jan 16, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Hello Christopher, this pump is 65w.
Does this pump require I port my kettle? Will it be too difficult to prime without the port?
Brad Stein on Jun 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hello Brad - It is highly recommend to have a bulkhead with shut-off valves on your kettle any time using a pump. The dangers of manually priming and or using a pump around boiling liquids are far too great.
Here is what I want to do, ideas?
Submerge an immersion chiller coil into a cooler of ice water.
Outlet on BK, goes to this pump, then to chiller, then back to BK to create whirlpool.
Is this pump strong enough?
If so, it would both chill and whirlpool with one pump and line!
Steve provoncha on Apr 28, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Steve, that pump should do just fine in that situation. Be sure you do a thorough cleaning and sanitizing of the inside of your immersion chiller first. Would recommend that you install high temp hoses on your chiller, most just come with standard hose since the normal use would be to run cold water through the inside.
What is the O-Ring item number for this pump? I have this pump and used it, but it leaks between the head and body. I would assume theres supposed to be an o-ring, but I dont know.
michael laso on Feb 2, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Hi Michael, the part number for the replacement gasket is PMP500G. It's currently not listed online but we will accept orders over the phone.
Can I use this pump with oil instead of water or beer? Thank you!
Catherine Forest-Nault on Mar 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I do not see why not but remember this is not a self priming pump. Also, depending on the oil they will be thicker. It’s a very beefy pump so it will push the liquids. The head is a “o” ring and the magnetic drive is powerful as far as pumps go.

For the price, this thing woks like a champ. Used many times with 5 and 10 gallon batches with no issues. Use it in conjunction with my wort chiller for recirculating the wort to help cool down to pitching temp quickly. On average can get to pitching temp in about 10 minutes.

Hot water transfer
Worked perfect for transferring 200 degree water from my kettle to my igloo HLT that sit about 6 feet high (for gravity fly sparging).

Lesson leaned!
I opted for this more economical pump rather than a Blichmann. It lasted 2.5 brewing sessions and lost pumping power. No, I didn’t run it dry. It literally quit pumping while transferring from the kettle to the chiller. I filed a complaint with MoreBeer and they graciously authorized return and credit. I already have a Blichmann to replace it and will be brewing again this weekend.

Works Good, nice size.
I used it to upgrade my Mash-n-Boil, really helps with temp control.

Then for sparging, I'm putting my hot sparge water into my to be used fermenator (Conical or SS bucket) and pumping up to the top with an added hose. The lid has a right angle barb to a simple plastic Siphon Spray Wort Aerator/Jet Fly Sparge. Might upgrade that part later, but have done 2 batches like this so far and works great.

Much more fun then going up and down the latter to sparge.
