I get excited when I dilute my spirits to 40% ABV...... It means I get more to drink more often

I had a 20 boiler with a 7 litre thumper when I started. I still managed to fill the thumper on more than one occasion. :oops:

I would imagine that the pressure from the boiler could overpower the weight of liquid it's pushing through, causing the thumper to keep filling.
At least this was what I found with one 1/2" pipe.

Perhaps the larger pipe is too much area for the pressure exerted by the boiler, hence causing the thumper liquid to "self drain" back into the boiler.

Me just thinking aloud.

Continue with this great concept Looey.
