Is there a particular brand of probe the seems to hold up the best? Or is better built than others? I wasn't impressed with a replacement probe from ThermoWorks, seemed pretty cheesy compared to the original.

From a diptube on the kettle the pump is hanging from. The hose is my underlet fill hose and sparge hose. I just leave it hooked up (no air in the line that way)So after pressing the shaft out of my impeller and cleaning it all with soapy water, it spins fine. So some little pumps don't like sticky liquids. My replacement.
Where is your inlet coming from?
The reason I think clearance is the shaft is seized in the impeller and the shaft had spun in the housing (has flats to hold shaft).My liquid level is still 6" above the pump.
I hear you though, lower would be better.
For sure. I was mostly thinking the cascading effects of the pump having to work to draw suction, the fittings string between suction source (restriction, the elbow) and pump inlet and the mechanical modulation of output. All that stuff combine may have caused cavitation and failure.
Pump runout seems unlikely given the flow rate you described.
Flow was restricted by a valve downstream (it is a mag drive).So which little pumps are working for everyone? I got one from a well known solar pump reseller and it lasted 35 min before it seized up and broke the shaft.
Were you restricting the flow on it? What is your flowpath?
Yes, using the di cells. I get a .1 difference between version 5.2 and 6.0 with the same info.Is there a way to adjust the acid content of Sauer malz?
Another thing my ph seems to come in higher than other calculators with the same info (my water has 120 hco3 if it matters).
Yup. Use the Mash SG Acid % cell.
Are you using the DI pH cells?
