General Homebrew Discussion / Whirlpooling

Didn't see this topic covered in any posts (I looked as far back as June).  Who whirlpools?  How? 

Looking at the last Zymurgy issue on hop-bursting IPAs.  The article suggests a whirlpool at flameout for hop additions by stirring.  How long should that be?  I've seen some newer brew kettles with a whirlpool outlet.  Can I create the same effect by placing a hose along the edge of the wort kettle and recirculating with a pump?

Any thoughts or experience with this is appreciated.

Didn't see this in the past few months of posts I scanned...

Adding a pump to my system this month.  Would appreciate feedback and pro/cons of various QDs.  I've seen a variety of SS brass, and plastic at my LHBS.  Because I'll have only one pump, I'll be switching lots of lines, from sparring and wort transfer to chilling through a counterflow.

Any comments on the lower cost non-march pumps?  SS versus plastic pump head?

Thanks
