I just realized my spelling issue on the title - don't hate.

I've searched around and have seen many people using pumps, but no discussion on what pumps people are using.

I will be using a pump to transfer my wort into the boilpot and for transferring the cooled wort into my fermenters. Does anybody have any recommendations for types/brands of pumps that they are using just so I go with something that is "tried and true"

I have been running 5 gal All Grain batches using gravity but am moving up to 20 gal batches now.

DOH!!! Nice catch.

All I have to contribute, is that I think frogs transfer warts without pumps.

Brewmaster's Warehouse isn't too bad, that's where I bought mine. A little cheaper than the other homebrew suppliers, although yeah - you may be able to save a couple bucks on eBay.

Be careful when you're buying, some come with a plug, some come without one (fine if it's going to be hardwired or if you're comfortable adding a plug yourself). Some have a center inlet, some have the inlet on the side; may or may not matter, depending on your setup. Center-inlet ones tend (from what I have seen) to be marginally cheaper.

Just got mine $108.99 shipped from the guys below. I haven't tested it yet, but everything looks good.
