Default Plate Chiller Question

I just got my 40 plate chiller today! I was planning on gravity feeding the wort through the chiller and recirculating the chilling water in an ice filled cooler/bucket.

Is anyone doing it this way? Do you have a better idea?

Thanks for your help.

First, and foremost, I have to stare at your avatar (which, for future genenerations, after that avatar changes, was a great perspective shot of a bronzed bathing body...)

Now.... what? I use a pump and in the summer, recirc back to the BK until temp is reached. Now (winter), I can go straight to the carboy. I use a separate pump to move pool water through the cold side.
