    I am just setting up my new van and was wondering , I have a Shurflo pump which I have always had it up right and have literately just turned it upside down , do I have to have the pipe from the tank swapped round or can I just put the hosing in as it is? Is there an in and out on the pump? Sounds stupid I know but ain't got a scooby lol, here's how I have just done it , I've turned It upside down and connected the hosing up is this ok?

    The pump has a "direction". So long as you've only moved it from top to bottom & not turned it around then you'll be ok.

    You will be sucking water and resin out of your di through your pump if you don't connect the flow properly.

    It looks ok to me. Input from right hand side.

    If you turn that pump upside down as in the first pic the inlet will now be on the left not right. You will need to swap the hoses over bud including the inline filter.
