I just got one of these pumps for my birthday. I bought this power supply off of Amazon for it and intend to use it through a standard light switch in a junction box. Ideally I'll be purchasing another one of these and using the same power supply for both (through a second switch of course). Although they both wouldn't be running at the same time. Anyone see issues with that?

Should be alright. As long as it's not lieing about the specs.

I trust Amazon a whole lot more than anything on ebay.

Subbed...Just bought a 2.2 GPM US Solar one on sale and it arrived today. I'm thinking about using it for my recirc pump on my eBIAB and hooking it directly to the outlet valve. Then I'll buy another 3.2 GPM GreatBreweh one as a booster pump for my plate chiller.

Same sellers use them both to push their product so it doesn't really matter much.
I used amazon to get my us solar topsflo pump for 28 bucks but now they are all at least $50

How have any of you mounted these pumps to your stands? I saw the fuel pump mount earlier in this thread but I'm interested in seeing other people's ideas.

I'd also like to see how others are mounting their pumps. I use mine inline with a BIAB setup, but I've had problems with priming and am thinking that it should be mounted below my kettle like most people have their March pumps.
