Reader Tip: 3 Plug Switch [for Keg, Carboy and Draft Line Cleaner Pumps]

Thanks to HBF Reader Jeff for this tip!  [8 Ways to Connect with HBF]

WalterDrake 3 Plug Outlet Switch

Three plug outlet switch.  UL Listed.  Measures 5-1/4″ x 2″ x 2″.

I use a similar switch for switching on and off my Mark II Keg and Carboy Cleaner and Recirculating Draft Line Cleaning Pump.  You could also use it to control your March Pump on brew day.  Always read and follow manufacturer’s directions.  I recommend using a GFCI Outlet when dealing with pumps and water.

Reader Tip: 3/4″ to 1/2″ Reducer for Center Inlet Chugger Pumps

Thanks to Facebook Friend Joe for this tip and photo!  [Connect with HBF on Facebook]

Center inlet Chugger Pumps are a little different compared to most high temp homebrew pumps with regards to fittings.  Most homebrew pumps are 1/2″ NPT threads on both the “in” side and the “out” side.  The center inlet pump is 1/2″ NPT on the “out” side and 3/4″ NPT on the inlet side.  Some people want this to be 1/2″ also, so a fitting is required.

Joe’s picture shows this 3/4″ female to 1/2″ male adapter in action.

Adventures in Homebrewing also has a stainless 1/2″ FPT to 3/4″ FPT reducer.  That as the “F” indicates is female to female.  That fitting is also included as an option on their Center Inlet Chugger offering.
