Just buy a john blue wet seal pump, the one with antifreeze in it and it will be the last pump you probably ever buy. We have several on the farm, and I can't imagine how many millions of gallons of nitrogen, fertilizer and water it's pumped. This pump was on the farm when I was a kid, running Briggs engines that just wrapped the rope around to start them, I know of 2 engines that blew up or wore out when I was younger, my father passed away in 2001 and I replaced the Briggs 3 times and finally switched to a Honda about 3 years ago. The pump only made it through 2 more years with the Honda before pump seized up, I took it apart and it was still repairable, I rebuilt it and kept it for a spare and bought same exact thing, I'm sure it will be the last time I need to buy a new pump.
