All Flow draw from 2 tanks
Permalink  
 


I saw something about drawing from 2 tanks on another thread but wanted to seperate it to get a more direct answer

I just set up a new trailer and didnt have roof for a 250 gal tank, so I bought a 125 with the goal of pulling from straight chem and from water tank. 

Rex says that will work but on the other thread, people have indicated that you dont always get good pull from 2 lines. 
Lori has a manifold that supposedly will.

Any one have experience with using it??

I think Chris is the one who said "he doesn't recommend it" due to "sometimes" you have one pump that doesn't prime and you are pumping either straight SH or water. Don't know about the manifold. Ask Chris. PM him if necessary.

Jon, if you use flooded suction, you should be ok, but it is tricky.  w/o restricting the chlorine feed line you will always be at 50/50 mix

flooded suction is when you use a bottom mounted bulkheard fitting, the gravity of the solution floods the suction side of the pump.You can always use a pinch valve that goes over the feed tubing/hose on the chlorine side to restrict the flow to get a weaker mixture.
