So, the blocker works perfectly when whirlpooling, my only problem with it is that I used too fine of a mesh screen. My flow rate is extremely slow through it, and just the slightest amount of break or hops on the screen will stop my flow.

Going to be building the exact same shape blocker with a more coarse screen, should make everything work perfectly.

So yes, the shape is working for me, may also help that my kettle is 19.5 inches wide too though.

Cheers!
