I might go ahead and try it then. I plan to thread the manifold directly into the Ideal valve so that's about as short as I can make the connection. I'm also only running 15 psi and the end of the line is open and feeds into the return pump of my sump so back pressure shouldn't be an issue. The only issue I can see is possible cavitation of the pump impeller.
