Hey dude, how are you connecting the short three or so inches inside the cooler from the false bottom to the coupling going out? The vynle tubing I used did not work on a long shot... then again I could have use SS clamps and tighten them down that way.....

Use 3/8" ID hi-temp vinyl tubing...I've used it for three mashes now without a problem.

No, it was a blue rectangular Rubbermaid.

I think they are talking about the Phills (listermen) sparge arm. I have that one and when the HLT is full there is no problem spinning it at even low rates. But I did have an issue of it not wanting to spin when the sparge water was getting low as there seems to be less water pressure going to it. I would just give it a flip now and again to get it going. This MAY be remidied by having the HLT at a higher level so the water drops farther to give it more pressure. I am going to experiment more with my next batch.

BTW, the phills arm looks like its brass to me. The stainless arm pictured above was quite a bit more $$ if i recall correctly.

Oh and by the way of humorous things that happened my first mash... if your spoon looks like this one used to, you probably want to get a stronger one. Mine, as you see, snaped in two.
