Yet another 11/10 review incoming:

I just used it for the first time today and I can say in complete confidence that it's a godsend. I was actually quite surprised at how quiet it was for a vacuum pump. The cats didn't even freak out when I turned it on, haha. It took me about 10 minutes to get everything set up. The one thing that kind of threw me a little was the connection from the vacuum to the overflow bottle. There are two connection points for the adapter, and found that you connect it to the one closest to you. I'm not too sure what the one behind it is for (the one with the mark on it.)

It did take a few seconds for it to start flowing, but it was to be expected (he mentions it in the blue wine quickstart video.) The customer service is second to none, too. I had a question and and received a call literally five minutes later. If you don't have one, I implore you to get it. It's the easily the best investment you could probably make.

The mark is to make it easier to know how many turns you opened the valve.

We are now installing a small piece of tubing on that port - so it is less confusing for the install.

It is pointed out in the manual and the video - But I believe this will make it even easier for assembly.

Thanks for your review !!

I will also add my review of the All In One. We got ours several years ago and my husband was making our wine. He loved the pump and was really impressed with Steves helpfulness. He passed away in 2019 and I was left with all our wine making equipment, a love of drinking wine, and little desire to make it myself. My daughter and I decided that we better learn to make it ourselves and so we did. I am not a big person and there is no way I could make wine without this pump. I cannot lift the carboys. This pump works wonderfully and makes winemaking a breeze. We make at least 6 batches at a time and with the pump its just easy. We realized we needed a new vacuum release valve for the pump so I emailed Steve yesterday. He called me back quickly and was very helpful. My order shipped out this morning. Thank you Steve for your help. I highly recommend this pump to anyone making wine at home.

I have 7 batches of red wine. We are bottling 3 batches in 2 weeks but we are not bottling the other batches for at least 3 months. Is it okay if we filter all batches now or should we wait to filter until several weeks before bottling for the remainder? All have been bulk aging for over 3months.

I do not have enough information - Like the 2nd batch is how old ? Is it still in the clearing process ?

Just a personal choice but I like to bottle immediately after filtering. Is the reasoning for filtering it now to using the same filter? They do get clogged.
Yes, my thought is we can filter all red batches at this time with 1 filter, I guess my question is it better to wait to just before bottling? We are going to use a 5 micron filter. 1st time using my filter setup with my AIO pump. Thanks

I don't have the set up you have, mine is a MiniJet and I can filter 8-10 gallons of clean wine with a set of 5 micron pads. I do believe your is more efficient though. Others with your set up might be able to tell you how many gallons you might expect but it really depends how clean the wine is in the first place.

I have done this with my aio filter setup. Just filter the ones you are bottling first. Then filter the rest. I dont think it will get clogged. It will still be bulk aged after the fact so worse case just filter again later but you may not have to. You will probably notice some light sediment at the bottom in a few months anyway even after filtering 4 month old wine. Remember taste is more important than clarity in my opinion.

We usually plan our wine making around filtering so we will plan our whites together and our reds. I have filtered 6 batches with one filter with no problems. The wine should be clear when you filter anyways so it shouldnt be a problem. We usually filter all the wines into a carboy, then bottle. I have considered though filtering one day and then bottling the next. I am not sure if there is an advantage to this or not. We use an AIO pump and filter setup.
