Good thought -- that solves all the problems. You could do immersion,
counter-flow, or a hybrid, anytime of the year with significantly less
water. That's the way I'm gonna persue (I think).

How about using a pump attachment for an electric drill? Since it's only
water you'd be pumping, the pump can be as sleazy as you want. I think
Black & Decker versions can be had for relatively few bucks...
