Beer engine vs Valterra RP800 Chrome Rocket Hand Pump

Post by dave_h » Wed Oct 10, 2018 12:38 pm

Could someone give me a comparison between a beer engine and a valterra RP 800 pump

As far as I can see they should work the same. Obviously a beer engine looks nicer but I can get a new valterra pump compared to an older second hand beer engine. The valterra pump I assume also has a smaller pump capacity so you would need to pump more times (which I think is a bonus as you waste less beer when cleaning).

Link for the valterra pump.

Thanks in advance

Pretty sure this is what a bunch of Aussies have used to make their own beer engines adding a silicon tube for a "spout" and various things to emulate a sparkler too.
