Why "T" type valves?

With respect to the valve on the inlet to the pump, won't this allow mixing of the CIP and sanitizer solutions?



Reason: typo

Those are three-way valves. They align two-ports at a time so it can be aligned from the left vessel to the pump or from the right vessel to the pump.

I noticed you do not have a pressure relief or gauge, might be a good idea since your heating caustic. What pressure are the kettles rated for?

Not planning on heating this round although you may have noticed the heating element in the pic. I just finished my tankless water heater cart that outputs 3gpm so I was thinking of just putting hot water in to dilute the CIP solution and not directly heating. Even when I do there is no lid clamp and I will have a controller to keep it at a reasonable 150 or less, do you think it is still necessary? The kids aren't clamped

You should be ok. I thought your lids were clamped. I use a Rinnai commercial tankless heater and was the single best investment I have made for brewing.

I definitely will! BTW, I recommend your false bottoms to everyone! Simply the best that I have ever used. I was actually talking about them with some guys while brewing yesterday!
