do you guys think this will work? i know that it will take longer to fill and empty, but at 1/5 the price this might be worth it. dont know if it is reversible or not. might be worth the chance of ordering one.

I would think it would work. The speed is definitely very slow. It should be reversible. I'd probably lean more towards a Simer, but ultimately you're going to get what you paid for...this one is about half the price of a Simer and will pump about half the speed.

Speed would be my concern as well.
200 gph = 3.33 gpm
750 lb sac / 8 lbs per gal = 94 gals
94 gals / 3.33 mins / gal = 28 mins to fill one sac.
And that is a max rating of pump, which you likely will not get.
