Stainless Steel Pump Head for MKII Pump

Stainless Steel Pump Head for MKII Pump

In Stock
60 day no hassle return policy. Details

Upgrade your MKII pump with a 304 stainless steel replacement head. Stainless steel is more durable if you are attaching ball valves. Very occasionally the threads on the plastic head that comes standard on the MKII can break if you are using hard to close ball valves that apply a lot of torque. Stainless steel is very robust and will not break, is food grade, and well... stainless.

It's stainless...
It's stainless, but the manufacturing quality leaves some room for improvement. The finishing of the machining is rough and inconsistent, plenty of apprentice marks (maybe mine was done by the apprentice?). I needed to take the dremel out to remove some very sharp metal and areas for material to get stuck behind. It's not that big of a deal, but I'd like it to be better.

The one thing I'm not thrilled on is the OD where the pump head mates up to the internal shell (with the o-ring). The plastic one fits perfectly, the stainless one has some slop. I haven't tested it yet to see if it will leak (I don't think it will), but it'll be hard to consistently keep my impeller centered.

Solid pump head. Easy install
Easy to install (2mins tops). Finish is good. Only complaint is that the thread cutting was a little rough (small nicks), but my fittings screwed on without any issues.

Should have ordered this when I first got the pump. I broke the original plastic head tightening up a fitting brewday eve, really took the wind out of my sails. The pump looks much more robust now, and I suspect this will serve its purpose for quite a while, but have only used it for one brew. If you buy the MKII pump, buy this head as well and don't give it a second thought, the plastic one will fail at some point, just a matter of when.

Decent pump head replacement
The original head on the MKII is not super for attaching lots of heavy stainless steel. This replacement head upgrades the weakness of the original as others have noted.
In the head I received I noticed that the outlet was not polished or beveled, making for possibly difficult cleaning and sanitizing. The tiny surface scratches on the seal area do not seem to affect the seal.
There was not a replacement seal included with the head but my new pump's seal looked fine. You may need to order a new seal if your pump is older.
Finished Setup, new angle with quick diskos & ball valve.
Rough outlet opening, imperfections on polished surfaces.

Almost perfect--but still definitely worth every penny
Almost worth 5 stars, but the item came with damage on the surface that mates to the o-ring on the impeller housing. I took a sheet of 320 grit sandpaper placed on my drill press table (nice flat surface) and rubbed the pump head surface down for a minute or so. You could hear the nicks and dings grinding away for the first few seconds then it went smooth. Placed it on the pump and tested it with a fully primed pump and shutting off the output with a ball valve--no leaks! This little pump ROCKS! I have only tested it the pump with a bucket of water, not during a real brew day, but i don't expect any issues (but will report back if some arise).
