Default Drive Pump

I won a drive pump from March Pumps in the vendor giveaway and I have never used a pump or even seen one used.

Do I just hook hoses to the in and out takes? I'm trying to get a visual on how this thing works and if I'm going to able to use it. Or if it's wven worth using...

What type of setup do you currently have? It all depends on what you have and/or what you want to upgrade too.

How do you chill? Do much lifting with all your gravity fed stuff?

I do quite a bit of lifting since I don't have a tiered stand. I use an immersion chiller
