I would like to get some input on the following flow design. I'm looking to use this setup for Brewtroller.

















Please be candid, I want to ensure I'm doing this right the first time.

Are you running your supply water through a chiller, before going to the pump?

In order to avoid another valve or two, while filling strike water it will run through the chiller. However at that time the chiller will not be serving any function other then to allow me to keep things constant and not have to change any hoses.

However you made a good point, I need a dump valve for H2O while chilling.

Are you going to go dual pumps or just switch to a two tier? I went with a double tier by cutting a hole in my table top. I like it.
