    Actually, no, I was not talking about the oil mist that comes from the exhaust port.
    "Backstreaming" is the effect of oil migrating away from the inlet port of the pump, towards
    the carboy. You may no...

    looks like you may have the answer without a complete reconfiguration for filling, glass and
    plastic. for those who jumped on the band wagon early any chance I can get just the adjustable
    vacuum valve...

    I pull my hose connection so the the back flow comes from straight air instead. It isn't
    something I like doing though. I'm considering a check valve or where it will pull air though a
    filter. .I beli...

    I generally just rack my wine about four times and it is degassed. From bucket to carboy,
    carboy to carboy after degassed is complete, k meta added, then 3 months later, 3 months later.

    I was referring to if you use a Racking cane inside the bung of the carboy that is under
    vacuum, if you giggle the Racking hose the rigid Racking cane can and will break. That is why I
    recommend the f...

    I have a couple questions. Before I ask I must say I 100% intend on purchasing an AIO soon.
    Looking forward to Transferring and bottling with it. Probably when spring harvest batches

    Are you looking for a vacuum pump to transfer,bottle and filter , similar to the
    allinonewinepump? The oil filled pumps leaks oil thru the exhaust port and can fill up the
    entire oil mist in your wine...

Steve:

Thought it about time to tell you what I think of your AllinOneVaccum pump system and how I put it to use. Mostly for my winemaking I use it for transferring and degassing the wine, which it does quite admirably. Most of my wine batches are the one gallon variety since they are 'experimental' batches (mostly fruit and juices). I also bought the whole house filter system. Concerned about wine loss I also purchased a five inch filter housing and associated 5 micron filter. FilterFast part numbers are 158111 for the filter housing and EV910809 for the filter itself. I have experimented with putting tube in the larger (10 inch) filter. So far the best approach I have is using a 3/4" OD X 1/2" ID vinyl tubing in the 5 inch filter.

At this point in time, I have only transferred/degassed wine. Also, I filter my water. I live in the country and have a well. House filter is 20 microns on a water softener & system for removing Hydrogen Sulfide. When I filter the water for wine use I use the 10 inch filter with a 5 micron rating & charcoal.

I am very pleased with your pump system and would recommend it to anyone in this hobby.


Sincerely,
Mike Watkins

He has an interest in his customers and prompt service.This All In One Wine Pump has been the best investment i have made to my wine making.I just received and looking forward in using Steve's, newest product the Head Space Eliminator Bung which will help me out a great deal in aging my wine.

I have been using the All In One Wine Pump for nearly 2 years now and I am really pleased on how well it works.
I have racked, and bottled approximately 60 cases of wine since owning it, and it has worked without any problems.
I am very pleased and would recommend it to everyone.
I must agree with others that Steve's customer service is the best, email questions are answered very promptly with a phone call.
