FAQ || Chugger Pump with High Temperature Stainless Steel Head

The pumps are the same except for the obvious SS and Plastic materials. As a brewer, we believe the SS Head has 4 main advantages:

  • It will not break easily.
  • It will not cross thread.
  • It is FDA regulated.
  • It is easier to clean and sanitize

Ryton/Teflon (Impeller), Teflon (Thrust Washers), Stainless Steel (Front & Rear Casing).

DO NOT RUN THE PUMP DRY!

  • The Chugger Pump is not self-priming. It needs to be mounted below the source of liquid and the pump head needs to be flooded prior to turning the pump on.
  • You can rotate the pump head 90 Degrees. With the outlet pointing to 12:00, 3:00, 6:00 and 9:00.
  • You can mount the pump horizontally, vertically and upside down. However, if you mount the pump vertically do not have the motor facing up.
  • Do not mount the pump in an enclosed space. This will prevent proper ventilation and may cause the pump to overheat.
