    I'm late to this thread but I would buy something made in Italy before China

    Enforcing a use tax wouldn't be that hard, it just requires the seller to provide information on out of state transactions. And the IRS knows they are missing a lot of tax dollars in this, another reason why many states require amazon to charge sales tax even without a distribution center in the state.

    I believe the price is negotiated for club group buys. I got my first wp25 for the same price as this one, $57 and that covered shipping. The price depends on what pumps are being ordered but the buyer gets these prices buy ordering as much as can fit in a box to keep shipping at a minimum. Btw shipping, via FedEx, is only taking 4 days to get from China to sac.

    I travel to San leandro a couple times a week.

    Everyone has their preferences. I have been running a wp25 since July and I have no complaints. I even called them and told them the pump broke, they asked for a serial number and when/who purchased it and was ready to send a replacement for free when I confessed it was a test. I have not used any of the other pumps but I can replace my wp25 four times and still save money over an mp40.

    When I upgrade I will keep using these pumps and I will probably get a bigger one. I'd love to get one of the wp10 pumps for my wife's tank.

    Ok who lives out in San Leandro, lets make this happen. :D

    Seriously though, what exactly do you have, worse case scenario I can drive out there myself. Heck a group buy of the group buy left overs :D

    I think there is only 2 or 3 pumps. I didn't organize the buy, I bought pumps from him for myself and friends who aren't on the forum.

    I think the total was $690 for four 25s, four 40s and two 60.this included shipping. I'm not positive.

    I would do an order like this or even an order of wp10 if I had the cash to front the bill. There is plenty of demand for these pumps.

    Def a good demand here for them. I just bought two DC pumps (6000/9000) that came in last night, probably could have gotten a better price in a GB. Looks like I may be picking up one or two from the other GB.

    I also am really interested in WP-10's. Looks like there really is a ton of interest in them

    Yup, although Steve in daily city sells them for $80 all day (WP-25's).

    few days ago someone was selling 2 of them for $60 each, almost pulled the trigger but I figured prices keep creeping down, I'll find a deal again...

    Very true.

    So who's going to start the GB? I'd do it but I don't know who to contact at Jebao about it or anything.

    to what extend are people controlling these (besides on/off)?

    I just use the stock controller with a light sensor. Pump one runs in W1 mode and pump two will run in ELSE mode.
