Stenner Pump Chlorine DIY Question

I just finished wiring up my Stenner pump. Like most guys, I read the directions after I mounted the pump to my brick wall. I mounted the pump for convenience, and it turns out it is slightly below the top of the tank (which most likely won't be filled). With the back flow preventer in the pump, is this an issue? I can fairly easily move it's location. I'll try to add some pics once I can.

As Ron said, it won't be a problem. The only reason to mount it above the vessel is to provide a drain from the pump head back into the drum in case of a pump tube rupture. With bleach, it isn't much of a concern if you spill a little. I doubt most pool owners even bother with the pump head drain.
