    Question on setup with tank

    One thing about "pulling water" if you dont prime the feed line you, you start out sucking air. This will cause damage every time you loose a prime or accidently run it dry. I suggest that you plumb in a way to prime the feed line. A simple y with a garden hose connector fitting will do. $5...
