    Looking great & like the upgrade:thumbup:. Are you going to ground this setup? If yes I have a 316L stainless steel welding rod available which has been cleaned up.

    its much better putting that below ur tank than not putting it there.
    its will settle in level and less vibration from the cupboards, ground etc:thumbup: etc
