So I finally got my pump/chiller toolbox done except for the water fitting for the chiller and ball valves and camlocks for the pumps. Just wanted to see what everybody thinks of it. It hasnt been brew tested yet but I'll give an update once I do.

So I used this a couple times. Only problem I'm having is purging air sometimes. Anyone have any suggestions for a ss ball valve with a air bleeder. I'm having trouble finding one. Here is the finished pic

Wow, looks like it was a lot of work. But it does look cool only having the fittings sticking out of the boxes. I like it when people think outside the box. Wait, would this be thinking inside the box?

Happy brewing!

Is your output still pointed downward? If so and you're still having priming issues, you could re-orient the out to point upward. This should help considerably.

Any other issues with those pumps? I have some on order and was planning on doing something very similar to this.

No not really any problems. Just had to get se to them a little bit. The silver box is just a junction box for where I have the power brought in
