    Sharing an idea, lower TA

    I had a problem, my TA is too high. So I made a sprinkler that ran off a spare pump I had. That pump died so I was stuck wityh a way to drive the sprinkler. My solution is to run some pvc from the waste port to the sprinkler and set the multi-valve to rinse.

    The connections are all made with male/female threaded adapters so it can be broken down and stored when not in use.

    Looks great! Only problem I can see is your not filtering when you are doing that. It would be better if you could somehow tap into the return plumbing. What I do is take off an eyeball and put a temporary fitting (nipple usually in it's place).
