    Looks like a good approach. I have a Better Shot Maker, but have not set it up yet. Your pixs have provided me with a basic approach to do so. What are the specs for the circ pump (name, where to get it)? Are you using full strength Sun detergent, or are you cutting it with water?

    We are using the sun full strength right now, I think I am going to add 2 gal of RV antifreeze so I don't have to worry about freezing.

    The pump is a Bell & Gosset pump like would be used for hot water heat system. I just put a gob of RTV where the flange bolts penetrate the ammo can to keep the coolant from leaking around the bolts and a thin scotch brite pad between the flange and the inside of the ammo can to keep anything solid from going through the pump.

    I usually use a Grundfoss pump that has 3 selectable speeds, I don't know if that option is needed I just had the B&G in stock so that is what I used.
