Thanks! Looks very good and simple. Still using a stainless bulkhead fitting and valve, right?
The only thing I see that may need attention is that the long slots as they are don't have a very large aggregate "open area" all together, compared to cross slits. Maybe another 2 sets of slots, one on each bottom quadrant of the tube, say 1/8" above the very bottom with an off-set, set could be added. Only one way to find out.
