Product Review (submitted on December 7, 2012):
I use mine for gravity-fed sparge water and it works like a champ. I can leave my RIMS system unattended for 40 minutes during sparge, and it’s foolproof. My only quibble is the same as Ken’s (4 posts below): the threads are 1/2" straight, not NPT as advertised. John was helpful when I emailed him about this, but I think it would be a better unit with tapered threads that would work with any old NPT fitting. Fortunately, I have access to a machine shop at work so I just zipped mine through an NPT die to correct the problem. Otherwise, a great product and much better than trying to adapt a toilet float valve to a brewing application.
