But I didn't want to shell out for the pumps, so mine is a 3 tier...
Hey, that's pretty cool. I specifically wanted the pumps due to mobility issues and difficulty with ladders, but that's a neat gravity system.

Hey, Ox.
I was looking in Lowes this week at the various parts available.
Do you have a parts breakdown on what you used?

For additional stability I may lay a piece of plywood or fiberboard screwed in accross the bottom as a shelf for offline storage and to help drop the center of gravity a bit.

I looked locally as well and couldn't find what I needed, so I ended up getting everything from McMaster Carr. I got the framing, nuts/bolts, and the corner pieces from them. It was cheaper than anything i could find locally, parts arrived the next day with $11 shipping...not bad. Granted I am two hours away from their warehouse in Atlanta. I ended up getting (5) 6 foot pieces of 2 1/4 x 1 1/2 and (1) 3 foot section. Also got (2) 6 foot pieces of 1 1/2 x 1 1/2 pieces and (1) 3 foot section.

Yeah I am not sure what I am going to do with the bottom yet...I need to see how I am going to do the gas plumbing as to whether I will build a shelf/bottom or not. I need to order my burners, etc and get those mounted as well.

Mine's actually quite mobile. Of course, you can't move it when the tanks are full, but that's kind of the point of only having wheels on one side. The weight of the tanks provides stability. And ladders aren't required. There's a fill valve on the bottom of the HLT with a quick-hose-disconnect. I'll probably pick up a couple of pumps anyway though. It'd be nice to be able to control the rate of flow through the chiller a little better.

What length hoses do you guys use? By my calculations, 4 foot sections should work well. Just wanted to see what y'all recommend before I purchase the tubing.

Thanks
