WC using a pump

Can someone recommend a pump to do WC? It will need to be able to syphon water out of a rubbermaid trashcan and into a 5 gal bucket. Then pump water out of the bucket and into my tank.

Do you have a sump or auto top off?

If you do not have an ATO which would prevent overflowing when using pump to fill up your tank then it is not a good idea to use pump. I would recommend using a pitcher which I still use when doing pwc on my 150 gal.

Follow the KIS effect. Keep it simple. Like said above, utilize an auto top off. I use the JBJ ATO with an aqualifter pump. I switch it from the distilled over to my salt mix for water changes and simply do a quick siphon out of my 55's system.
