In order to save a couple bucks, I think I'm going to get the March 809 w/ the 3' cord as opposed to the 6'.

Does anyone know how difficult it is to open the pump housing if I want to wire in a longer cord?

I have that exact pump and it's great, but from what I can tell it would a major pain to open it up and change the cord.

But overall i'm glad I purchased that pump and saved the $20, all it took was a $2 plug end and it was ready to go.

I dunno but I will find out because I need to do that exact same thing. Can't be too bad. They put it together, it can be taken apart. Just needs some patience.

You can always just wire the3ft cable it to another cable to add length. Solder the connection together and cover it with shrink tubing

Nah, that would be just too easy.
