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.

I like the features for flow control and air purging. I used this pump at a buddy's house and liked the way it worked.

no brainer if looking at pumps
This pump is awesome. the features it has make it far superior to other pumps. I love that it has the tri-clamp head on it, so its super easy to take apart to clean and sanitize, plus you can rotate the head any way you want it. I love that it has a relief valve built into it also, it makes it super easy to prime. The flow control valve is also amazing, as it is built right in, so I didn't have to buy a ball valve for the outlet. This pump is quiet too. The little things like the heat sinks, and the rubber feet, plus the on/off switch on the side of it make it TOP NOTCH! I love this pump. Do yourself a favor and get this one if you're in the market.

Great pump, quick and quiet, love the pressure adjuster on the out
I highly recommend this pump. All the features to make your brew day seamless. Easy to assemble and operate. Sure beats the old make-shift crap I had before. The cord wraps nicely around the base for storage. The on/off switch is covered with plastic to protection. I didn't get good gravity flow from my kettle through the counter-flow chiller, just too far of a distance I guess. The handy pressure relief on this pump fixed it instantly. Just one quick pull and the pump kicked right off and put the whole 17 gallons in the fermenter with ease. No problems. Don't buy cheap crap, you actually end up paying more in the end anyway. I'm considering the plate chiller next to upgrade from the counter flow chiller.

Delivers what's promised
The power switch, throttle valve and quick disassembly make the extra expense worth it. Just keep an eye on the tiny washer and thin gasket, and maybe have a replacement handy, as I'm sure the replacement kit isn't cheap.

Great Pump
Now this is what a pump should be. Built in flow control that gives you much more control over ball values. It's very quiet for a pump which is great when you are going to run it for a while, like a whirlpool. Built in air bleed valve and on and off switch. This was a huge upgrade over my March pump. It's priced at a premium but I'm glad I saved and splurged on this pump.

Great brew pump
Very quiet yet powerful motor. Excellent flow control with the built in valve. I added quick connects to make hook up more convenient and a ball valve on the outflow so that I can shut the flow off momentarily and not have to readjust the flow rate. Very easy to disassemble and clean.

An amazing pump!
This is my first pump, so I don’t have a point of reference, but I can say that I love this pump! It is very quiet, and I know from other’s pumps, that this is the quietest pump for homebrewers. I also have read reviews that this pump is too powerful, and that it’s flow rate is too fast. I was able to slow it down to a trickle, and at full blast it can move 12 gallons in minutes. I have taken it apart and put it back together a couple times, and it requires no tools! It takes seconds to pull it apart and to put it back together again! I love the tri-clover disconnect. I’m glad this pump is awesome, as I was nervous about making the right choice for my pump. But Blichmann has again proven to me that they are the company to go with for my brewing needs! I would say if you need a pump, look no farther, but the Riptide!

Forget any other pump you ever used...make the switch
I switched to this after my other chugger died and cavitated constantly. got pissed. pulled the trigger on this, and wow!!! jesus Blichmann, settle down already, you won the best equipment title already! its silent, has a button switch so no more plugging and unplugging, tri clamp, and the valve is great. I have used it for 4 batches, I recirc entire time in mash. I have not had a single cavitation issue once! I need more more pump for fly sparging so once my chugger dies, ill be purchasing another one!
