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.

I wanted to write and say what a wonderful product that the All In One Wine Pump is,I have owned mine since 01-2013 and have worked it hard. Other than having to replace the vacuum release valve this pump has been trouble free,and customer service with Steve,the owner,is a pleasure to talk and work with. 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.

Thanks again Steve for your prompt service

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.
