If you put the chiller below the pump isn't there going to be the propensity for the air in the chiller to come back up into the pump? I would have thought just the opposite - to put the chiller slightly higher than the pump to allow the air a natural path of escape.

When I pump straight from the kettle the pump sucks hop material out of the pot and gets clogged, when I let it run out by gravity I can control the flow better and most of it stays in the pot. Any material that does get out goes into the grant which is in a constant whirlpool so it all goes to the center and stays there.

I cool all my wort in brew kettle with RIC, so if I employed the grant my 70F wort would be exposed unless it was covered.
