Hi Everyone,

I wanted to get some feedback on the comparison of using Shurflo versus FloJet to pump water from a container for an espresso machine and milk jug rinse station. I plan on using an accumulator in each setup to resolve any flow issues and disruption when both systems are pulling water.

Any thoughts or suggestions?

Thanks,
Greg

Here is my set up with An Aquatec pump Has worked flawlessly. I have read the life of Flojet isn't that long and it cycles a lot. Haven't seen people use them with accumulators. There are a number of Slayer owners using the Shurflos.

Hi Everyone,

I am setting up a coffee station on an IKEA island that is in my home office. I plan on setting up a rinse station in combination with the coffee station with tanks for fresh water and waste.

I use a flojet with an accumulator. It's durability is questionable but I've made it work for 3 or so years. Not sure what i'd do when it finally dies though.

Dude - That's an Aquatec pump you have there. I have found them to be of higher quality than Shuflo, more reliable. That's why it's worked flawlessly.

See what happens when you don't have espresso. Fixed my post for that. Thanks.

I finally finished the setup with a Shurflo system and a larger tank.

I originally went with shurflo 804-001 but with the rinser, I wanted the larger tank so I decided to go with shurflo 804-023 that would run the pump less.

Good idea. I think both the Shurflo and Aquatec solutions are better than the Flojet.
