Default Show us your pump and plate chiller set up!

I've recently incorporated a March pump and plate chiller into by brewing setup but I'd like to build a sort of "pump/chilling" station that holds it all together nicely. Right now my pump and chiller just sit in-line on my garage floor while I'm chilling. I'd love to see how others have built a little pump/plate chiller stand or gizmo to inspire me with ideas to get this stuff off the garage floor.

thanks

Crappy picture, but it's what I have on hand. (Far right side) The process involved is drained from the BK through the pump to the plate chiller. Out of the plate chiller is a Tee junction that has ball valves on either side. One goes back to the BK in a whirlpool line, the other side of the Tee goes to the Oxygen stone and a line to the fermentor.

John Beere,

That's pretty sweet! Are you concerned at all about getting fluid into your March pump as everything is so close together?

I would hope he gets fluid into the pump... Otherwise, how would it pump?

Being a follower of John's previous threads, I assume everything was tested to be absolutely water tight, a few times over, prior to any actual use...
