Lookup JayBird's false bottoms from http://norcalbrewingsolutions.com/ They're a bit pricey, but they work great. Otherwise, Sabco makes a good false bottom.

As for pumps, I use an older Chugger pump and I like it. They've got a new model coming out, but are currently out of stock on their website. If you're needing one right away, can't go wrong with the March 809.

As far as false bottoms go I haven't used a hinged on but the pico false bottom I use works amazingly. As far as a pump I run the March 809 HS and love it.
