DetailsThe Super Transfer Pump with Pre-Filter is a self-priming pump with an automatic shutoff switch as 45 psi. It makes transferring your wine a breeze because it does all the work for you. All of your fermentation equipment can be on the same level now because the pump will move the wine up, down, or wherever you want it to go. The pre-filter helps prevent large sediment from getting into the pump and damaging the motor. This pump also offers an adjustable flow rate for those times when you might need more, or less, power. This unit pumps at a rate of 3.0 gallons per minute maximum, and it can run without interruption for over 90 minutes.

4.5 / 5.013 ReviewsGood pump for the priceThis pump works as advertised. For the price, it's a very good pump. The instructions are VERY clear about torquing the filter and breaking off the hose barb fitting. There's an online video (see instructions for the URL) that shows how to take the filter assembly apart and how to remove the body without breaking the hose barb. Unless you want to spend 2-3 times more for a heavier duty, larger capacity pump, this is your choice. I will order a pump with more capacity when I start handling 80-100 gallons.August 25, 2012Super Transfer Pump Is My SaviorDon't step up to a 60 gallon barrel if you don't have this pump or something better. Fermentation, punch down, and press don't really require special tools, but once you fill a barrel or container you can't lift, trying to precisely angle a siphon and keep it going is near impossible. I racked off the gross lees with a regular auto-siphon and it was really difficult and time consuming with 3 people. Since I didn't have the barrel elevated I honestly don't know how I would have done the second racking without a pump of some kind. Using the Super Transfer Pump, I was able to cleanly pump 65 gallons of wine (losing 2 gallons of sediment) into holding containers, move and clean the barrel and carboy, returning the wine to the clean containers in a little over 2 hours with just a little help from one person at the end. This pump and pre-filter are fast and don't require priming. Clean up is simple too. I just got it so I can't speak to durability, but if you clean it right after use, it is supposed to live a long life. The bad: 1. It is a little scary that you can't get it wet considering the environment it needs to operate in. 2. Refitting the pre-filter screen after cleaning is very tricky.March 29, 2016Excellent pumpIts a great pump, but must be used with care, else it can break or not work well._x000D__x000D_You can break the hose barb fitting so read the instructions, they are clear on this point._x000D_If you are careful and follow directions, this will work well for you._x000D_December 21, 2012PowerfulIts powerful enough to do the job, and its self priming which is nice. Its a little delicate so read the instructions and watch the video. You can break the hose barbing if you are careless, so treat it with care. I give it 4.5 stars because it is delicate, and if it were made a little stronger I'd give it 5 stars.March 11, 2013Strong and self-primingIt's expensive but it's worth it. I never have problems with it, having air pockets, and it's a strong pump. After being warned, I read the directions, and handle it properly, so as not to break it. Don't think of it as a heavy piece of machinery you can mistreat, think of it as a precision tool that has to be handled gently.March 29, 2013Very happy customerLove this product! I use it often. It has made my life a lot easier when it comes to racking & transferring product. Worth every penny!!February 26, 2017Purchased
over 2 years agoThis allows me to keep brewingThis product is also very helpful for brewing. I have my back trouble and cannot lift 5 gallons of liquid anymore. This pump has saved my ability to continue brewing. It's self priming, has an adjustable flow rate, and is easy to clean. As others have mentioned be careful (DELICATE) with it, and it will serve you well. The following is from the paper supplied paperwork: Self-priming; Auto shut off at 45psi; thermally protected motor; max liquid temp 130deg F (54deg C); can run dry for short periods (5 secs); max flow rate 3.0GPM; pump can run for over 90mins continuous, adjustable flow rate; 110volts, 0.5Amp; 40 mesh prefilter strainer.February 1, 2014Deluxe pumpIts powerful and does everything I need. There are some good online videos that explain how to properly use it and maintain it. Follow the directions and it's a faithful servant. I deducted 1 star because you can damage it easier than most pumps. It has to be treated well all the time.July 22, 2013A really good pumpIts powerful (at least compared to my old one that died) and works well. Its good that its self priming. You do have to be careful with it so you don't break it. I read the directions and also watched the online video so i know what not to do.September 9, 2013Self primingTo me it's got a big advantage - it's self priming, which is way better than other pumps. Its strong and not overly loud. I was warned about it's breakability so am very careful with it and not over tightening. A good performer.October 9, 2013

Browse 3 questions Browse 3 questions and 11 answerscan I get a new screen for the pre-filterBEST ANSWER: Jim,
We do not carry replacement screens but you may be able to find them at The Vintage Shop. They may not sell directly to you but they should be able to direct to someone that does carry them.
Cheers!Is it possible to use this pump to transfer wort from kettle in garage to fermenter in my basement? About 30 feet or soBEST ANSWER: I pump wine about 18 feet when I rack my Zinfandel and Cabernet. I pump 10 barrels of 55 gallons each without more than 5 minutes break between barrels, all on the same floor. But it looks like you are pumping to a lower level. That should be an easy transfer. I don't see a problem with your project. Especially with gravity assistance.Can this be used for beer? Will the filter remove any leftover yeast
