i found a 35 dollar march pump on ebay (food grade) brand new shipped. I'm skeptical, is anyone using these?

Make sure it's the pump and not the replacement Head for the pump. The new heads are average 35 bucks.

Ya, that's not a March pump. March is a brand name, and that's not it.

Not being a March pump aside, that pump may very well work just fine for you. My only concern is that's the only picture I've ever been able to see on that pump and I don't see a good way to attach a hose to the inlet. I bet you can figure it out though. Be sure to let us know your thoughts on the pump. There's been significant speculation on that pump and I don't know that I've ever really seen a solid review of the pump.
