Alright...everything looks bada$$ but I have a questions. I'm planning a single tier system using 2 march 809 pumps (very basic) and was wondering how the flow control would be done if fly sparging.

I did try this for a while but it's a pain to get the filter clean after every brew. I was considering going back to this IF I could find a course metal filter that was longer lasting, reusable, and easily sanitized.

Why not? Prime pump, control flow with valve on the out put side. I thought this was how all the single tier guys were doing it.

Yeah, control flow from the Output side of the pump, not into the pump.

The March beer pump is magnetic drive so it is able to slip the pump impeller and let the motor run at full RPM with ut damaging anything. If you get a direct drive pump them you do not want to use ball valves to regulate flow as you will just burn out the pump motor, but with magnetic drive ti is fine to use ball valves to regulate flow. Hope this helps.
