    Never had anything to do with Shurflo, but have read a lot of the threads on here. Other than everything needing to be leak free & possibly needing a recirculation line, it seems quite simple.

    CDL Auto Drawoff

    Anyone got opinions on the CDL modulating draw off? Price is a lot better than H2O, D & G & Lapierre.
