Look back some pages as I instAlled a pipe down the
Middle of the intake side
I have limited internet as I am doing a high adventure with the
Boy scouts this week
Hope to respond better by monday
What sort of pipe did you add? Is it food safe? How far down does it go? How did you fasten it?
The hole in my housing is very very small. I am afraid that tapping it would cut through. The wall looks to be about 1 to 2mm thick. I got the Pentek 158326 1/4" not slim line 10" housing from filters fast.
For now I've taken a grey irrigation pipe, which are cheap like borscht, and filled off the threads for what looks like a good pressure fit. I've also only left about 1/8" of space above the bottom of the filter housing. I will see how well that works.
I would defintley leave more space than 1/8''. I was thinking along the lines of approx 1'' or so and yes a good pressure fit should be fine as well.
The ID of the pipe is only 1/2" in diameter, so I was thinking that 1/8" between the pipe and the part the filter mounts on at the bottom of the housing would allow plenty of flow. Is that not enough space for the vacuum to pull in our something like that?
I have had the allinone for about eight months now. I sit back and wonder how I could of enjoyed making wine without the allinone. It has truely made my tasks of racking, degassing and bottle filling fun. No more lifting full carboys and bottle filling is a snap. The customer service from steve is the best you will ever find from any company. I waited to give my review to see how everything worked and held up. If you dont have one than by all means you need to have this setup. I love mine and if you are on the fence about the purchase think of it as a long term investment in you. The time saved and wear and tear you put on yourself is well worth every penny.
