Hows this pump?

So from my other thread, I successfully brought back 450 gallons of never used clean virgin oil. I was transferring the oil from the tote and drums when my POS farm pro 12v transfer pump died on me. I called them up and they only have a 90 day warranty. They sell parts for a repair, so Ill take a look at that but depending on how much the parts are and what is broken, im looking at getting another pump.

The harbor freight one Harbor Freight Tools - Quality Tools at the Lowest Prices seems to be commonly used but isnt self priming and fails alot ?

So I was looking and harbor freight also has this one. Harbor Freight Tools - Quality Tools at the Lowest Prices

What do you guys think of this?

I kinda like this one Tuthill Diesel Fuel Transfer Pump — 115 Volt AC, 18 GPM, Model# FR1618 | AC Powered Pumps | Northern Tool + Equipment. Id like the more bells and whistles of the northern tools one as it self primes and has a bypass valve to prevent overheating.

What do you guys recommend?

Do you prime it each time or do you have some valves to keep the oil in the pump when not in use?

I have it plumbed so it's gravity fed. As long as my wvo is not real cold and thick it primes and pumps right up.

Yes if you mount that pump below the oil source it will never lose its prime. watch out, those things suck at sucking! haha they can hardly lift water 5 feet. I have many of those pumps around pumping water (for watering the garden during the summer/moving water around) and a few in my bio setup. they work and you should replace the cap that comes with them. read my post about that here Blue Harbor Freight pumps read this if you gotem

for collection I use the fillrite 1604 pump. it works ok but it really slows down when the oil is thick. I am working on a SBC pump that I hope to have working in a week or so. looks like this

DinoFuelAlternatives has two different pumps for sale that are supposed to be awesome. vegistroke.com

I'm using a gas powered pump from Northern Tools (small Honda model). That sucker (pun intended) can throw out 37 gpm if its cranked all the way up but can be throttled back to a flow rate slow enough to pass through a 200 micron bucket strainer.

really the tuthill pump is going to be your best bet. Its self priming. The clear water pumps are good for stationary setups, but if you are going to use it to pump barrels the priming is a PITA.
