    yes, its a hassle.

    Another problem is that normally the upgraded tank should go where the current older too small system is standing. So the job becomes just so much more for that weekend tank move. And bigger than 1000L is not a weekend job. Maybe, but then not only one person.

    Every little thing you plan to change during the upgrade, also takes time to execute. Best is if your new tank is setup in another position. Gives you the advantage of taking your time setting everything up before you move the lifestock.
