This is just for racking cold[er] stuff out of bucket fermenters or after it's cooled, etc. I'm getting tired of my auto-siphon clogging up, or causing unwanted aeration.
I found the 2088-594-144 (corded version) for $100 on eBay (guy had buy-it-now at $120, my $100 offer was accepted). They are the same pump. One has the exposed three wires, the other has the 6' cord. I can't believe most places are selling these at a $40 difference for just a cord.
