Here's a few photo's of my system. I've had it running for 3 years now and really enjoy cranking out 12 gal batches. I'm planning a batch for this weekend. I brewed a porter last weekend and the prior weekend a hoppy pale ale.

Dear God! Is keeping all of that clean and running a PITA? I am in awe of ever having that much gear, but I maight make the leap if it didn't look so intimidating.

A buddy and myself put this system together. He's a great welder and love's this stuff. He built the oxygen set up. As far as operation and sanitation, it practically does the work itself.
I use a good caustic cleaner followed by a acid rinse. Everything after the boil kettle is a clean in place. Before I run off, I'll recirculate for 15 minutes using 180 degree water. Very simple.

I do not think I have ever seen a march pump inverted like that. Do you ever have an issue getting it to prime?

As long as you don't have any air in the inlet hose it works flawlessly. If there is air present, I'll undo the inlet , let a couple of ounces of water through , then reattach. Another trick is too just lower the outlet line after the oxygen system and it primes with no problems.
