Did you by any chance notice if that thing is Aluminum or cast iron? I have recommended that pump a couple of times based on two that I personally know of that are performing very well and holding up just fine. These are however cast iron pumps and I think the one I looked at recently was Aluminum and built somewhat differently so they may have changed. If that is true the cast iron pump may be gone now but the Aluminum version may be as good as the cast iron version, I guess only time will tell.

It was a vee configuration it looked like it might be cast iron. I checked the HF web site and they say it is aluminum construction with cast iron sleeves.
Listed out at $119, the store sale was $99 saving $20. I don't know if it's a good pump or not. The stuff I'm used to is much much bigger than what everyone is talking about. Tom F.

The one I have is giving me a good service for what I need..Set it to pump to 100 psi max and it will work better and 100 psi is all most of us need anyway I think..

I have tried most all of it and now do what is known to work..
