I'm with you, Man! Don't need no stinken pumps!
I fill my HLT with a hose, no lifting.
Drain into my Mashtun, no lifting
Sparge into multiple 5 gal buckets, no lifting.
Pour the buckets back into the HLT, and presto! it's a boiler!
(OK, some lifting here, but I can control it by using more buckets.)
Boil and drain into 6gal better bottles, or the fermenter of your choice.
I do 10 gal batches without a pump and never a backache!
God's own drunk, and a fearless man.
