396 Gallon Per Hour/GPH Submersible Pump by EcoPlus

  • 396 Gallons per hour; 36 watt motor
  • Included fittings: three-.75″ Barbed x .75″ Threaded, two-.5″ Barbed x .75″ Threaded and Nozzle x .75″ Threaded
  • Suitable for installation on dry land for in-line use or submersibly into the water

I use a similar pump for a recirculating draft line cleaning setup.  Note that fittings sizes are different on this pump vs the one I use in that build.  Adjust accordingly  Another possible homebrewing application would be to set this up for use a part of a recirculating wort chiller setup.

Twitter Follower – connect with HBF on Twitter – Blaine Says… “That pump works great during wort chilling. A sink full of ice water pumped through the immersion wort chiller is fast.”
