Default How did you mount your plate chiller?

I am considering a few different configurations for mounting my plate chiller/pump assembly and would love to hear any lessons learned from all the HBT experience out there. It seems like mounting the pump inlet and chiller wort inlet facing downward allows air bubbles to travel upward and out, possibly minimizing any air pocket issue if hose connections aren't 100%. Any other suggestions? Photos would be greatly appreciated of how you have yours plumbed. Thanks!

Mount the chiller in such away so as to allow gravity draining after final rinse.


Pump outlet should face up so that the bottom of the pump head fills with liquid.
