Mine goes BK/pump/chiller/fermenter.
I can't find a picture of the silly valve I'm talking about. I know I've seen them around here, so I must be using the wrong terms to search. When you mount the pump, you put "in" down, so that the air comes up. Some have elbows on the "in" to make that easier. You don't need a ballvalve on the "in" of the pump. Anyway, there is a T- type fitting I've seen to open, to let the air out, and then only wort or water to the pump.
I'd call it a bleeder valve or something.
I have QDs on my hoses to change them around into the HLT/HERMS/BK/Chiller. I don't see that in your drawing, but it makes life easier!
