Agree completely. 50 gal power vent is my personal choice. I like AO smith the best, but john wood, bradford white and rheem are also good brands

I agree with matt. A large amount of cold water is bad news for septic. They taught us that in school and i see no way it couldnt harm the system. Not to mention overworking your pump.

Ok if you monitor the jet pump set up i can see the logic and that sounds like it would work.

If you got even 4" over 70ft thats enough. You hardly need grade, way less than typical drainage. If you got 1/16" per ft that's enough in my opinion to drain that pipe down.

Definitely do a heat trace, extra insurance is always good. See what you figure as far as the yard goes. Putting a drain in and grading pipe is the best option. Hell even if the pipe is level it'll...

Hahahahaha paint the pipe thats awesome. Eventually you wonder why your water has a hint of rust in it when you go to drink a glass of water. Black iron is not to be used on domestic water.
