For alternative lagering methods, try a swamp cooler with rotating ice bottles a couple times a day or use a big cooler sitting on end with ice bottles rotated in the same manner.

To use a pump to accelerate chilling are you using a regular wort chiller and using the pump to move the wort around?I use my pump less than I thought I would. I think it depends on your system. If you are brewing mostly 5 gal batches and don't need to get the water higher than you can safely pour it then definitely the burner.
I use my pump on every batch for accelerated chilling. That was the main reason I got it. But once I had it and it was hooked up, I found other uses for it, too.
Thank you all for the help....I kegged today. The wort tasted great! It was a Wheat Ale using Amarillo and my own home-grown Chinook Hops.
