Let the plumbing begin

Posted 04/20/2011 at 01:56 AM by Rotknee

Here is my first crack at the plumbing.
Of course you will notice that my return flow T'd off to another line that may get less flow. Note, in the big picture plumbing it this way would be best as any other was would have called for more elbows whereas I am now only using three.

When filling the tank the difference between flow wasn't noticeable.

With the pump in line I was able to fire the puppy up. To my surprise the tank was awfully quite. The tank was virtually silent. The gate valve was fairly straight forward to adjust with the Herbie method.
