I'm in the market for a pump. Wanted to get input regarding the appropriate make and model. Any suggestions, recommendations and/or warnings would be appreciated!
+ 1.060 to the March 809 pump. Available at the shop or most any online retailor.
My tips in using the pump are;
- Input pointed down, outlet up
- Ball Valve for flow control on outport only
- A waste port/tee w/ extra ball valve for ease in re/priming the pump as needed (mine is a brass ball valve with a waste port built obtained at bLowes)
A lot of homebrewers including myself use the March 809. The shop usually has one in stock. Although a bit pricey, if taken care of it will last for years.
