Just curious....I'm putting together a recirculating single-vessel BIAB RIMS stand right now, so I've been researching a ton lately.
I don't have any problems priming my system Topher. I just run the liquid through the lines to get the air out, hook the outlet hose female disconnect to a male disconnect and let it rip.

The Chuggers that are essentially March 809/815 clones are not self-priming. At all...

Cheers!
