    Dude, seriously, we just had this discussion. Buy a Fill-Rite already and be done with it.

    Dude, I know, but for $150 why not buy this pump instead of spending another $150 on a fill-rite when I won't even be using it everyday anyway?

    I hear you, but it's always been my experience that the cheaper stuff never lasts anyway. In the end, you'll pay for a Fill-Rite way one or another, just do it right the first time. I'd rather buy a used Fill-Rite rather than a new, off-brand pump.

    Well the reason why I was wondering is tractor supply has a 100 gallon tank for $300 now so I was thinking now may be the time to buy a tank atleast. I'm tired of lugging heavy ass 14 gallon duraflow tanks around and pumping at 1gpm through a gravity pump

    hahaha Ya we just had this one. You can buy a re-built fil right for 289.00 why go through the hassle and down time for $140.00. You will love having a tank, I always wonder how I ever managed with out one.
