Okay, we got our Hot Liquor Tank filled with 12 gallons and heated to 170 degrees.  We fired up the pump to move it into the Mash Tun and had major problems.  The pump kept losing it’s prime and our fancy quick disconnects were leaking at the hose connection.  We lost a lot of water and what we did get into the tun was not at a good temperature.

We removed the crimps from the hose, and that seems to have fixed the problem of leaking.  We heated up some more water and got it to go finally, but we mashed about 10 degrees lower than we were aiming for.
