    Default Hot condensate pump?

    Looking to purchase a pump to move steam away water and hot condensate....what should I look for and what should I avoid?

    What are you trying to do with the water? Move to away to dump it, move it to a storage tank, or pressurize it for cleaning? Each one could require a different type of pump.

    I use a grundfos pump,meant for outdoor furnaces. I have quick connects on it so I can keep it at home where it will not freeze until I need it. I pump the hot distillate from the tank either into the steam away or the holding tank for the evaporator,depending on what I want to clean

    Move it mostly from tank to tank or into my pans to clean
