I have both the tan and cheaper black pump. Both work well the black one seems to put out a little more volume. I use the tan one to pump hot wort through my plate chiller and whirlpool. The black to pump the cooling water through the chiller. I recycle my water have 2 55 gal. barrels pump from one to the other.I do have ball valves on both outlets but have notneeded them. If I had to do it over I would get 2 black pumps. They are cheaper and put out more volume. Now we just have to wait and see how long they last.

just my 2 euros worth
I have a tan coloured pump bought from solarpumps.co.uk very good customer service as said by alien
it is the sp20/20 model.
they are used a lot by uk and aussie brewers the only downside i have found is the output thread part is a little prone to breaking if you are heavy handed with the fitting of camlock onto the thread.
Peter the seller has also warned if the pump is not cleaned well the next time you go to use it it may not pump.just soak it in hot water to release the impeller if it is stuck with dried wort.

I got my Tan pump in 2 weeks. The previous linked power adapter works well. I plan to whirlpool with it.

I will post a video of how well it does as soon as I am done assembling.

Just bought a tan P-38I pump direct from BuyInCoins.com, $19 with 5% coupon (just google around) - slightly cheaper than ebay.

Ordered 3/22, received 4/1. Not too bad from abroad. It was only wrapped in bubble wrap and in a big envelope, but seemed to arrive intact. Unfortunately I don't have a setup to use to test, so I still don't know how well or if it works. Got my fingers crossed all goes well.
