Stainless head "chugger" pump
« on: April 11, 2011, 04:04:33 PM »
Much cheaper than other stainless head pumps I've seen. Anyone using one that has stood the test of time? Reliable? Durable?

I got one when my plastic one broke.  It works fine.  It isn't the nicest machining in the world, but it works just fine.  And it should last forever.

can you guys give more info on this so that we all can evaluate? What's a "chugger" pump?
You wouldn't believe the things I've seen...

Looks like a brand name for a small centrifugal pump seller.

An after-market pump-head that fits a March pump? Or a modified March pump? The website lacks details.
