large tanks with large water changes?

what do you guys use to transfer rodi water from rodi tank to salt water tank? im doing 10% (50g) water changes every 10 days. and my pump that pump fresh water gave up last night, so had to finish water change with buckets yesterday. also my pump was sitting inside the rodi water tank it self, and i dont know if its ideal idea also. all you big tank owners how you do it?
Im just looking for a different way to transfer water with out having pump sit inside fresh water. i have 150g storage tank and it has a valve on the bottom of the tank, im thinking of raising tank up and let gravity do the work to transfer water.

I make RO/DI water in a 44 gallon brute. I add salt and mix with a pump. After mixed I have a mag 24 in the bucket with 25' of hose. I drain my tank and refill pumping up from the basement
