Using a Pedal Foot Switch for Easy Pump Operation

MLCS 9089 Billy Pedal Foot Switch

I use this on/off foot pedal foot switch for easy, hands free control of my March Pump while brewing.  I’ve used the same one since of March of 2011 and it works great.  I keep it at the base of my Blichmann TopTier, relatively close to where my pump sits.  One foot press turns the pump on or off.  Note: Always be cautious when using your pump with hot liquids and read and follow manufacturers directions.

Note: Another style of deadman style foot switch is available.  That version requires you to hold your foot down to engage the switch.  As soon as you release it is disengages and turns off whatever is plugged in.  I went with the on/off, but understand that the deadman style is also available if that suits your needs.  Depending on what you’re trying to turn on and off is GE’s Handy Switch is another option that’s out there.  I use that for my keg cleaner and draft line cleaning pumps.

MLCS 9089 Billy Pedal Foot Switch, 2 Step ON-OFF Continuous Running


I use my brewing pump for: recirculating my mash, transferring from mash tun to brew kettle, chilling using a recirculating immersion chiller and transferring to my fermenter.
