Looks like we nailed it man! I love to see a plan come together! I think once you use it a few times you'll ask yourself how you ever lived without the added filtration. The stability is just a bonus!

Cheers
Jay

I guess I'm a little late to this party, but you could also have fixed this problem be adding a simple grant to your setup. You'd drain from the mash tun into the grant by a simple gravity feed, then pump from the grant back to the tun. This would eliminate any suction from the mash tun altogether. It also gives you a good point at which to evaluate the wort clarity during recirculation, not to mention take samples to test for starch conversion and monitor wort pH.
