I like the Zoeller 267, but I'm not following the sizing chart on the Zoeller website. Money is not an option here. Best quality for my needs.
There isn't really a good/better/best in your situation. Zoeller is a solid pump manufacturer. I also like liberty's pumps.
At any rate, when you're reading the chart, basically on the bottom it's showing you flow rate in gallons per minute, and on the left side is your elevation that you have to overcome. If you look again, you'll see that as the elevation increases, the gallons per minute decrease. In your situation you really have no need for something fancy or expensive.
I do however prefer a pump that has a pigtail style float rather than the one attached to the side of the pump with a rod.
