    I started filling up from the intake side first is it normal for the water to be filling up all 4 chambers at once? I was thinking it would cascade from the second chamber to the 3 and finally 4 where the return pump is. Any thoughts guys?

    Ok I thought it would be sealed completely at the bottom to make sure all water goes the correct way.

    On second thought .... What about evaporation ? Won't all 4 chambers then drop ? Whereas only the first 2 chambers should drop...

    the chambers are not totally closed off. When system is running then the volume of water taking short cuts is of no concern.
