Default Beer Stand Design - critique please?

This my design that I have not built yet. It will allow gravity or pump feed. I may use 2 inch steel vs the 1.5 inch shown in the drawing. Any feedback from experienced stand brewers on this would be
appreciated.

How would that configuration be amenable to gravity feeds from both HLT to MLT and MLT to BK? As it appears now a pump is required somewhere...

Cheers!

Ditto that day trippr. Isn't the usual method having the HLT the topmost, draining to MLT, then to BK? Unless you are going to gravity drain the MLT into a third vessel and hand pour it into the BK, which is what I do. My pump compacts the grain bed too much.
