Perfect addition to upgrade my March pumps

Cleaning my traditional magnetic drive stainless steel pump head requires disassembly from the mount near the floor, this kit is just a tri-clover fitting, which makes it some much easier. The added benefit of a purge valve and a linerar flow control valve make this a no-brainer.

Seem's like a good option to retrofit my plastic pump head.

Riptide Brewing Pump Upgrade Kit
I completely endorse the Blichmann's upgrade kit. It was easy to install on my March pump that I had for years. With the adjustable knob you can regulate the flow more accurately then the lever valve I had been using. I've used it for 4-5 brews and I am comepletely satisfied !!!

Great Pump
I replaced another brand SS pump. It seemed every brewday I would have a pump issue and troubleshooting with boiling hot wort is no fun. This one is very easy to clean. The pressure relief and built in valve are very helpful when setting up my recycle and whirlpool.
I attached it directly to my brew stand, so I did not use the mounting plates

Excellent upgrade
Attached to my chugger pump, works great. Love the flow control, love the rotatable head, really love the ease of cleaning.

Worth the difference in price compared to a rebuild for the chugger.

Working out great for me!
Really great purchase in my opinion. I upgraded 2 of my 4 year old March pumps and gave them a new lease on life. Love the Tri-Clamp fittings! Makes the pump head super easy to disassemble and clean. The integrated flow control is a nice addition as well.

For me the process took about 30 minutes per pump. It was pretty simple to do.

Great upgrade for my Chugger pump!
I own two stainless chugger pumps with the center out port. I have a three vessel herms system. One pump recirculates the hot liquor tank water and the other pump is reused to recirculate the mash and transfer to the boil kettle. I always disassemble the chugger pump that touches the mash/wort to clean it. It is a pain in the butt taking out all the screws and putting it back together. This Blichmann upgrade allows me to disassemble my pump, clean it, and put it back together in less than two minutes. For me it has been worth it. As an added bonus, I find the pump to be slightly quieter and more powerful.
