Blichmann Riptide Pump

Postby Matt F » Tue Jan 23, 2018 9:14 am

Anybody using the Blichmann Riptide Pump? They have the upgrade for a March pump for $100. May get in the future. The two things I really want are the tri-clamp easy clean capability and I like the flow control valve.more precise than current ball valve that seems to always be too slow or too fast and can't get in between.

I wanted one, but I run a 3 way valve on the output so I opted to stick with what I have until it shits the bed and go with the Mark II....damn things are whisper quiet

I will likely upgrade my March pump with the Blichmann head. I really like the easy cleaning capability. Especially since my wort runs through the pump as it is chilled.
