if by 'better' you mean 'more expensive', 'takes up more space', and 'less powerful' then yes, much 'better'...

Everyone has an opinion on these things, take a risk on one, $50 wasted on a pump is no biggie if its crap or just pay for a D5, I have not heard many bad things about them at all

Yes but creekin is an alarmist.
"Oh no one product broke , that must mean every single instance of that product is faulty! Never buy anything from that company/shop/country ever again!!!! "



Spoiler below, highlight to read:
No but seriously Creekin has some valid points, I just don't care about those particular things.

Get the D5. Most used pump on these forums (I dare say), not one foul word used in the same sentence as the D5.

The $50 you save can be spent getting a pump top for the D5.

my D5 lasted about a week before it turned into a tractor powered lawnmower.

Swapped to an EK DCP4.0, have not looked back. i've only had to top up my system with the dcp4.0... 2 maybe 3 times since i put it all in? the D5 i was doing it monthly. it cracked two of my o-rings each month from pressure buildup or something.

wtf?!?
was the loop clogged perhaps?
got any pics or a log.....never heard of that before
seen them blow off a pump top but that was due to a faulty thread on the top.

Was about two years back, so I dont unfortunately. I have the pump somewhere in storage I think. The impeller inside the pump grinded itself out, so the hole was about 3mm thicker then what it should of been. I came home after work one day and I could hear the pump from outside my house. I thought someone was running a lawn mower inside my lounge room when I heard it. If I find it I'll upload some shots.
