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.
