The team of homebrewers at Blichmann Engineering and March Manufacturing have teamed to create the RipTide™
It solves a number of problems.
  • High performance curved blade impeller and strong rare earth magnets deliver 7 GPM and up to 21ft of lift
  • Tri-clamp head connection fully disassembles in seconds for easy cleaning
  • 1/2" NPT inlet and outlet connections
  • Totally enclosed motor is splash proof and super quiet (50 dB)
  • Integral linear flow valve for superior flow control - don't spend more money for a separate valve and fittings.
  • Integral air vent valve and partially enclosed impeller design allows you to prime the pump in seconds
  • Stainless steel head rotates 360 degrees to fit in virtually any installation
  • Large stable base with protective rubber feet keeps the pump from tipping
  • Convenient power switch on the base
  • Includes a 10ft long cord without plug (230V)
  • Base acts as a cord wrap for convenient storage
  • Assembled in USA from USA and imported components
  • Patent pending

The new riptide pump out flows the competition while running at three times the efficiency!* When the flow rate decreases, the pressure goes up to provide a better whirlpool for cleaner wort, faster chilling, and a quicker transfer than ever before. Due to the curved vane impeller, you can pump over a gallon per minute faster at the same pressure as the competition’s pump. 

*Based on hydraulic horsepower comparisons between a widely common home brewing pump and the new RipTide pump.
