it took me along time to get up the nerve to use my sanke. but once I did..well I have not used a bucket or carboy in about a year. kegs are great. they wont hold in heat.

+1. I used a diaphragm pump for the first time last weekend. It is a great addition to the brewery.

HAHA! I loved the customer review on that page. "If you're in the market for a self priming pump, stick w/ the March brand. (editors note: The March pump is not self priming)"

FWIW, it's NOT advisable to heat a percarbonate cleaning solution past 180F.

You gain nothing in terms of cleaning power and the organic compounds you just cleaned off start reattaching to the surface.

The diaphram pump looks great, but there are other upgrades i'd make before i dropped $140 on one of those. I'll stick with a CO2 push for now.

Heres a pic of my 13 gallon carboy with about 11 gallons of Oktoberfest fermenting inside of it. The one gallon water jug next to it should give you some perspective:
