Description

Imagine a brewing pump that eliminates cavitation, is easy to clean, has a built in valve, and is quiet. Introducing The RipTide pump from Blichmann, the first pump designed specifically for homebrewing.

We love this brew pump. Like a brewer wired on coffee, let us rattle off some of our favorite features.  First, the pull style relief valve that allows air to exit the pump head so the impeller won't cavitate is a genius addition. Our next favorite feature is the bad-ass, built-in flow control valve so you don't have to add additional ball-valves. While we dont manually clean our pumps very often we like the idea that we can easily do that with the clover clamp style connection. That might be particularly important if you are transferring cool wort where extra sanitation might make a difference.  Equally cool is the noise, or lack thereof, when operating. It just wears on you to hear your pump grinding away all day. The RipTide pump isn't silent, but it is much quieter.  And to top it all off we like the mounting base and the extra long 9' cord. 9' gets the plug connection a few feet away from where we are brewing and less likely to be exposed to water - a simple upgrade that is really nice.  Oh, and we almost forgot the power switch which is always a nice feature on something electric!   

All in all this is a no brainer upgrade for the difference in cost.  

 

Features:

  • Strong rare earth magnets and a curved blade impeller provide 7 GPM and up to 21 ft of lift
  • Tri-Clamp head disassembles easily for cleaning
  • 1/2" NPT inlet and outlet
  • Motor is enclosed in a splash proof and super quiet case
  • Rotatable stainless steel head
  • Integrated air release vent allows you to easily prime the pump everytime without those frustrating air bubbles and cavitation
  • Linear flow valve provided for excellent flow control
  • Power switch on base
  • 9 ft. long power cord with 120V plug

Pricey, but so far worth it
Many pumps that I was looking at didn't have the integrated power cord and/or on/off switch. Runs very quietly and it is easy to prime by simply lifting PRV (remember to have your gloves on so you don't get burned by boiling liquid!).

Added quick connects to ends and hoses to make it easier to use.

Works great!
Bought as a gift for my adult son, who has been brewing for several years; he's even taken a few awards at a local county exposition. He has said he is very pleased with it.

Its the little things that make this pump great.
So well made and a lot of thought went into the design. Pumping is as good as any I've seen but the platform, the on/off switch and the flow control make this a keeper.

Great pump
Great pump. Super quiet. Only comment is that when you use the pressure relief type pull valve to prime, fluid comes out and is hard to control. A bit messy. Otherwise best in class in all other aspects.
It’s there somewhere.

Great features, but priming at times is a PITA.
The reason I paid $50 more for this over other pumps is Easy Cleaning, Power switch on side, Built-in valve, Heavy duty air vented motor, Mounting stand bracket ,Tri-clamp assembly and stainless-steel construction.

Cons:
Priming! Water has to be gravity fed and flowing to pump to get going.Ex. Pumping out of a bucket lower than pump.
