    Has anyone tried one of these cheap chinese water pumps? I want to use it to pump sparge water to a sparge arm while draining the mash tun into a second keggle for the boil. I'm picturing a triangle looking setup with 2 keggles on burners and a round-cooler mash tun above and behind them... if that makes sense.

    I'm trying to avoid spending the dough on a march pump for now. This pump is rated for the temps I need, but i'd like to hear from someone who's tried it, if possible. May be worth a try for $30 anyway, but I'd rather not waste money if that's all that's going to happen. Here's the link...

    Thanks in advance for any insights.

    Looks like cheep chinese pump. Good price though. For that kinda money if it screws up one batch... coulda been halfway to a good one price ways with cost of grain, let alone time. Pop open one of those IPA's and flip a coin? :roll:
