Blichmann RipTide Brewing Pump is the first pump designed specially for homebrewing, solving problems that plague homebrewers for many years. Unlike other general purpose pump, RipTide Brewing Pump is splash proof, ultra quiet, and very easy to clean. In addition, this pump features a built-in pull style integral air vent relief valve that allows air to exit so the impeller won't cavitate, an integral linear flow valve for precise flow control, and a tri-clamp stainless steel head that can rotate a full 360 degrees, allowing perfect flow control and bleeding of the air. The included stable motor base keeps the pump from tipping over when in use and can be mounted anywhere with a long 10' cord. The base can also be used as a cord wrap for easy storage, and has a power switch for turning on and off at your convenience.
