Looking good. Do you have a pic of how the pump mounts? Having a hard time picturing it. I'm designing a heated lodo mash tun at the moment.

Low O2 System Planning

The pump (the small little black unit) has rubber rings with through holes for screwing down and fastening the pump.

The skid is going to consist of a 1"x4" red oak plant and small skid proof feet. Directly below the pump will be a 1/4"x4" piece of red oak that will shim up the space between the clamps and the pump and make the whole thing rock solid.

Here is the nearly complete dual kettle setup:

Hey just got one of those little solar pumps for a screaming deal. How have you liked it so far?

With my small setup it moves liquid pretty well. It's rated at 13 l/min and in actuality it's pretty close.

As a general update on the brewery:

How are those little pumps to clean? I have several chuggers and with some serious flushing I still seem to get some growth between brews.

There isn't much to them. A flush does the trick.

Did you end up controlling with pwm or throttling valve?

I currently have a valve on it but am planning on replacing all manual valves with DC valves and when I do that I'll put a voltage regulator on the pump to restrict the flow.
