    I'd be asking what the pump head is made from before buying, make sure it's food grade :thumb:

    The pump head definitely looks like some sort of plastic to me, are we looking at the same pump :wha: If it's iron I wouldn't go near it.

    Seen quite a few guys using them, Jim, Andy etc, look at norther brewers thread here
    That other pump looks good to me, the head looks like the same material as the March and Totton pumps, throw them a quick question regards food safety.

    That will work too. When we bought our solar pump they were cheaper than the price you have seen. We also use the power adapter for our mag stirrer
