As Good As It Gets
I’ve been home brewing for many years and have put together a setup I’m happy with, but this pump is my favorite piece of equipment. It’s everything, and then some, you could ask for in a pump.
EXCELLENT. Well worth wait
The pump arrived with some issues on manufacturing which I contacted spike and they stated it would be OK to use. Then when I finally plugged it in to clean and test the pump made grinding noises. After watching YouTube I saw how to fix the issue as the magnetic head needs to be adjusted to a quarter and two nickels tolerance. I did that but still makes slight grinding noise. Will adjust one more time and see if the grinding noise stops. I know it is a new pump but my other pumps did not have these issues.
I absolutely love the Flow pump. I would highly recommend it to any homebrewer!
Air Relief Valve
Placing a purge valve on the inlet side of the pump provides the best way of getting air out of your pump head and hoses. Just twist the easy to grip knurled knob, then water and air start to flow through the ARV outlet.
We even placed a little barb in the pump head casting that faces front and center, so it's easy to collect fluid out of the barb and dump it back into your kettle. Since the inlet of the pump doesn't produce any pressure, the valve can be open even when the pump is flowing and you won't get sprayed.
Why is higher pressure better? Well, high pressure makes for better cleaning when using a CIP ball. It also helps give a better whirlpool when running through a chiller. It helps move your wort quickly when pumping through hoses, which ultimately shortens your Brew Day.
7,874 feet of 3D printer filament and almost 100 pump prototypes designs...that's what was required as part of developing the Spike Flow pump head. The was crucial for achieving our industry-leading performance goals. We invested in further techniques such as clear SLS prints (so we could see and visualize the water and air flow through the housing) and CNC machined parts to be able to run hot water and wort testing before our casting tools were ready for prime time.

Clog Proof Impeller
Ever deal with a clogged pump on Brew Day? The Flow features integrated chopping tines on the impeller, which chops up solids like hops, grain and trub to prevent clogging.
Shhh, brewing in progress. Due to the optimized pump head flow path design, coupled with a totally enclosed motor, utilizing roller bearings, we've been able to achieve the quietest brew pump on the market.
Gone are the days where you need a screwdriver to take apart the four or more screws to open up your pump head. We borrowed the tri-clamp attaching design that commercial brewery pumps have been using for decades and made it available for the homebrewing community. Taking apart your brew pump to give it a good soak now takes 10 seconds or less.
Looks Damn Fine
Design isn't an afterthought for us. The Spike Flow was designed to perform and look best in class. It features a black anodized motor shell, shot-blasted housing and 304 stainless steel precision machined casting with maximized inlet and outlet ports.
