The CHUGGER PUMP® Stainless Steel Inline Pump 115V is a homebrew beer pump which is typically used to transfer hot and/or cold liquids between brewing vessels. It is important to note that a CHUGGER PUMP® is not a self-priming pump so DO NOT RUN DRY! The pump head must be flooded with liquid prior to turning on the pump. The CHUGGER PUMP® is also magnetically driven which helps you control the flow rate by adding a ball valve on the discharge side of the pump. This pump can handle liquids of 250F.
