This solution rocks!
Cleaning and draining off the gunk is so much more convenient. With the ball valve it was a 15€ modification

I have bunged my original tap. I do everything from the lower one.

Makes brew day quicker & easier.

Haven't seen anyone do a mod on the pump out side of 20L
Thought process is use the pump to move wort through plate chiller/counter flow, fast wort transfer, recirculation, etc.
I know it would be a tight fit, but figured someone smarter than I has figured it out already...maybe have the outlet coming out the front somehow instead of the back???

Hello,

We all know it in houses the major cleaning problem is draining gunk.
Can anyone tell me baking soda is working perfectly if we clean drain of the house?
Please share some tips if you know better techniques for cleaning...
Thanks...

All those who have done the mod. How hard is it on a scale of 1-10 to get the pump off the thread? From reading it takes a fair bit of grunt work and heating.

Arbitrary scales are difficult... 1 is wiping your nose and 10 is building a nuclear reactor?
Let's say that you will think you're breaking stuff when you're doing it right...

I guess the question is, has anyone damaged the threads/nut from being too heavy handed.

It is very difficult to break threads UNDOING them.

I don't think this is hard - what you need it good technique....
1. Remove the whole thing from the BM. Unplug the cable.
2. Strip away the pump motor, impeller and seal. Put somewhere safe.
3. Pop just the brass bit it in a wooden jaw (non marking) vice.
4. Use the correct size spanners.

Notes..
Its probably as tight as a wheel nut on your car.
Trying to do it on the BM will be difficult and lead to issues. You need a vice and correct spanners (or a mate with such)

Perfect, just what I was after. Wheel nut analogy is brilliant!

That's the second time you've mentioned the Camurri, what are you implying Mashy? Hope you're not jumping ship!
