4.7 / 5.026 ReviewsAwesome!Great pump! I have used this for 2 brews. Love the stainless steel head! This needs to be gravity primed to work. I have a Blichmann burner and it was plenty low to the ground to get the wort/water flowing. Quiet, fast pump. Things to know is it is not waterproof. I cover it with a plastic box on brew day because I have it mounted to a board on the ground. The only other thing I am going to do with the pump is wire in a foot switch for hands free operation.May 20, 2013Making brewing age appropriateAt 60 my days of brewing by bucket brigade were about over. Either I quit of advanced my system. Well I couldn't quit, so I built a brew stand and mounted two Chuggers to form the system. They work like a charm and am good for another decade of suds. I like lagers!July 31, 2016Excellent pumpEasy to clean and works well with hot liquids. Can be tough to prime sometimes but any pump is like that.January 12, 2017Purchased
6 months agoAwesome Product !!An Awesome pump that won't let you down even after hours of continuous use. They work side by side with my March pump and both do exactly the same the same job, at a lesser cost.May 18, 2013Good Value pumpReceived promptly, works well pumping wort. added quick disconnects and a valve. No negatives at all.December 28, 2015PowerfulIts a great pump that I use for long stretches and it's never let me down. Its quiet and just as good as the March pump (I had one of them too)._x000D_Just make sure you prime it before using it.July 1, 2013Great valueI used the this pump for the first time today on 2 brews. It worked great but I am going to setup a switch to easily turn it on/off.July 10, 2013Excellent pump for a fair priceUsed for a full day of brewing and worked great. Quiet pump and as stated in a previous review, it is not self-priming. Be sure to buy a pair of 1/2" FPT when you are ready to brew. Also, pretty handy to have around when you want to clean out pumps, wort chiller, and other fittings.July 23, 2013a powerful pumpIt has a great look and has done well by me for several long brew days. Its quieter than my other pump too. For the price its good value. Just remember to prime before using because its not self priming.August 2, 2013

Browse 5 questions Browse 5 questions and 14 answersWill this pump work as a recycling pump. Another words "continuous and NOT SELF PRIMING. if it were a self priming the soft vanes would wear out due to continuous use as a recirculator ?BEST ANSWER: It will work as a recirc pump, but it'll need to be positioned below the supply of the fluid so that it can prime itself. Also, the pump housing must be positioned so the outlet can vent any air that accumulates in the housing. There is a diagram on the Chugger website.Do you have the 230 volts version?BEST ANSWER: My pump is the 115 V version. Standard US wall outlet power.Can I use a Valve on the output side to control flow volume?BEST ANSWER: A valve can be used on the output side to control the flow. A valve should not be used on the in port of the pump to control flow as this will starve the pump, which will eventually cause pump failure.What size tubing connects to the inlet and outlet; 1/2" ID?BEST ANSWER: Hello Matthew,
Thank you for choosing Midwest Supplies! Most will run a 1/2 silicone tubing. They will either connect the tubing using a barbed fitting... http://www.midwestsupplies.com/1-2-fpt-to-1-2-barb-stainless-steel.html Or more commonly, the trend is to use quick disconnects. Basically take a Female to Female stainless coupler. http://www.midwestsupplies.com/1-2-female-stainless-coupling.html and use that to couple a male quick disconnect http://www.midwestsupplies.com/stainless-steel-male-quick-disconnect-mpt.html and then connect your 1/2 inch hose with a barbed Female quick disconnect http://www.midwestsupplies.com/stainless-steel-female-quick-disconnect-1-2-barb.html I hope that this is helpful, have a wonderful day!!do the chugger pumps come pre oiled?BEST ANSWER: Yes, they are pre-oiled.
