I've been using and pond pump in a bucket with star-san than I pump through my coil while I'm heating up my strike water. I do this because I have a copper coil and want to remove any copper oxide (the green stuff) that can form in or on the tubing and can be toxic , If you are going to go stainless this is not a problem.

I use copper and my HEX coil is in the HLT, life is good.

I flush it after mash with hot sparge water and the outside (which only touches water) is a lovely brown oxidised color.

No fuss, no muss, no worries.
