I guess I don't see where the oxidation threat comes from by just using the pump to transfer. Bypassing the plates and filter pads completely

Oh, whoops, sorry I missed that part. I assumed you were pumping the beer through the filter plates. If you're just using it to pump the beer, I guess the risk would be minimal, but still not as minimal as simply using a basic auto siphon, I would think. Do you have to prime the pump first, or will it "suck" the beer up and out to get started?

Its self priming. I watched it pretty closely while pumping around water and didn't see any excess bubbles anywhere in the lines while running or while it primed itself...
