Description

We recommend the following items for your vacuum wine pump filter setup. These items are also recommended by the manufacturer for wine filtration:

All items can be found at http://www.filtersfast.com. except for the barb connectors,and the additional racking hose which I do sell them on my accessory page if you can not find them locally.

I highly recommend using the precision vacuum valve (https://www.allinonewinepump.com/product/new-precision-adjustable-vacuum-valve/ )  It will make your wine go slower thru the filter – in effect getting better filtration thru the cartridge filter and no more pulling of unwanted air from possible leaks.

It has been recommended to definitely mount the housing to something solid in order to properly tighten it down.

Next index your housing top and bottom after hand tight (with a marker or paint pen – see above post for pics at this time ) Install filter until the index marks align up properly. That will tell you that your housing to O ring is properly sealed.

Teflon tape the barb fittings that screw into the housing – do not over tighten

The difference between the P-5 and the PD-5-934 is the 934 has a plastic tube liner and it is much harder to align up the marks – the P5 has open ends on both sides( without the plastic tube reinforcement ) and that is what creates your seal as the housing is tightened down it will literally makes its own seal in the cartridge itself. It should not damage your housings, even if you install it wrong, unlike the PD-_934

I hope this clarifies any problems with the use of the whole house filtration system – there will be a better tutorial later – I just wanted to get the information out there as quick as possible.

Here are some pics, the top one is the cartridge with no filter – hand tightened and indexed

I would like to thank Boatboy24 again for the great pics !!

The 3rd picture is the pd-5-934 filter that is tightened with wrench (notice the index marks ) The 3rd one will definitely pull air in the housing that could not be seen by the naked eye.

    After reading all the reviews I decided to give it a try. I thought I’d be smart and mix my order to save a couple of dollars and be able to do more things. I placed my order and within 30 minutes had a call From Steve. He talked me through a few things and we went with the Deluxe Unit. I have only racked/degased once and have played with water trying to bottle. The unit works Great!!! This unit is a must have if your up in years or have a lifting problem. Thanks Steve for being there.

    I have my own pump with Steve’s tubing. I am currently making a batch of Skeeter Pee, and I must has transferred at least 10 times back an forth, including shaking the receiving carboy, before it stopped foaming in a significant amount. Steve called and asked the rating on the pump. I have to look it up, but it may not be as powerful as the AIO, so may pull a lower vacuum during transfer, and thus not degass as fast as the AIO.

    You know Guys and Gals, I have been reading the rave reviews for the All in One Pump over the past years and I have to admit, I was skeptical. Because I had a pump, I only ordered the ancillary pieces, e.g. the two-hole stopper, the relief valve, tubing, etc., for bottling. I hooked it all up and several attempts to bottle left me “underwhelmed” by the product. I put it in a drawer and returned to using a siphon and gravity. Labor intensive, back breaking and slow as it was, at least I could get the job done. Still, in the back of my mind was the nagging question, “Why is everybody so crazy about this thing and why do I think it is at best, so-so?” I dug it out of the drawer, tried it again with the same results and was about to deep six it when I thought, “Why not contact Steve (hereafter known in my house as Job) and see if he has any insight?”

    It took a couple of phone calls to diagnose and isolate the problem and Steve hung in there. After several conversations, we found that Steve was to blame. He should not sell his product to idiots! Yes, I had the relief valve on the liquid side and not on the vacuum side as the process design calls for. Today I rectified the assembly and bottled a 6.5 gallon carboy in about a half hour, start to finish including installing the corks. I am now officially a rabid fan of the system and I give it my highest recommendation to any home wine maker. You will save yourself so much time and trouble, not to mention your sanity, by using the system.

    Lastly, no recommendation of this product would be complete without recognition of the man behind the product, Steve. He took on my issue as though it was his problem and never quit until we reached a resolution. A great product is one thing and there are many out there. Superior customer service is much more rare and is a treasure when you find it. Put this on your wish list, birthday list or Christmas list, but get one!

    Now your offering the 1/4 NPT to a 3/8 barb after I ran all over Toledo and finding only brass. I did go to Ace hardware to get their last two.
    Seriously steve, You customer service is excellent and continues to get even better.
    By the way after two bottlings, two clearings, 8 rackings the allinone is fantastic. Clearing a wine is so much quicker when it is degassed properly. It should have been my first major equipment purchase. Oh well live and learn.

    I ordered the bottling setup from Steve 2 weeks ago and got the goods just a couple days later. I just had the opportunity to give it a test ride today. I was a little concerned about what I thought was the lack of detailed directions for bottling using my own Wade-bought pump. But on the phone Steve made it sound simple. And it was. It’s very intuitive to use, and it fills quickly with virtually nothing going to the overflow container. I’ve got 15 gals. ready for bottling, and I’m actually looking forward to doing it now. Thanks Steve

    I just received my bottling accessory from Steve and WOW! After a few practice rounds with an empty bottle and my carboy with water, it was a breeze! Can’t wait to bottle my next batch in a few more days. A true time saver and with no mess. Steve you have created a great product and I wish you continued success!!!
