Hi everyone! Is there a filter I can just use with my transfer pump to clear the wine? That would be good for 50 gallon batches? Hoping to save some money by using my existing pump.
Any suggestions would be great thanks!

I know that some here use the "whole house" filter.. Perhaps one of them will chime in.

I do exactly that, small water pump and house water filter with 1 or .5 micron filters. I would caution though that if your wine is not clear, I wouldn't filter. Depending on the degree, your filter could clog quickly. I use the filter for polishing vs. clearing.

Here is a good read.
