What kind of gasket do you use for the tri-clamps?  I have a mix of the black flexible rubber ones and the white phard lastic ones.  I find the white plastic ones much easier to work with.  I should probably buy some more.  I'm just wondering what you guys think.

I also have a mixture of black and white gaskets. I haven't had them long enough to develop a bias either way.

I like the silicone ones over the black buna ones.  The teflon ones are great if you need to rotate something like a racking arm on a conical.

Thanks for all the advice.  Got my pump on Saturday.  Cam locks from brewhardware.com arrived today.  How cool is this... after I ordered, he refunded my cc $9 because shipping was cheaper than quoted.  Quality outfit, they'll certainly have my business in the future.

Next, a stand for the pump... Inspired to try building one with unistrut!

Sounds good. Post some pics when you get it hooked up. I've let the wifey know she can do all her Xmas shopping at brewhardware.

If you have access to zymurgy there was an issue this year that had a great article about unistrut stands.

Yeah, that's what I was remembering when I thought about a pump stand
