Bravo BST12 vs Bravo BTP12

I know there's been a fair bit of chat about the Bravo pumps over the past few months but something I can't work out...

What is the difference (apart from shape) between the Bravo BST12...

Bravo BST12HP High speed, high pressure

... and the BTP12...

Bravo BTP12 12V Pump - Manometer - Only 99.95 - Force 4 Chandlery

They are both 12v, both do a HP floor and both have the combined 160/450 flow rates. The BTP12 has the advantage of a gauge but it seems cheaper most places.

You may be right. I think I've heard the BST12 referred to as having brass wearing parts... perhaps the other is plastic??

Annoying the more expensive model doesn't have a gauge... that's important to me.

Thanks for catalogue Max.... all I can deduce is they mention brass motor gears for the BST and make no mention for the BTP model so you have to asume that is the only real difference related to performance.

As I've said already shame you have to lose the gauge to get the brass gears.

Send a message via Skype™ to benc
Could I get that catalogue too please? ben@bencummins.com, I need to buy a pump, but find it difficult to find any decent information online about them.

Thanks

Ben
