FYI - I've brewed over 40 batches on my current system (in one form or another) and am still learning to do it more efficiently obviously.
The pic I posted earlier (post #31) shows the plumbing best. Boil Kettle on left (out of view), HLT on right, MLT top center and the Grant is in the center. The pic is showing sparging. Right pump is pulling from the HLT and feeding the sparge/recirc manifold. Left pump is emptying the grant and pumping to the Boil Kettle. During recirc, the outlet hose of the pump on the left is hooked to the sparge/recirc manifold.
Here's the MLT empty:
