Filling Freshwater Tank Using Onboard Pump

Spent 5 days at Martinsville Race dry camping. I brought along an extra 25 gallons of freshwater in collapsable 5 gallon jugs. Getting the water into the tank was a chore in itself. I got to thinking of how I could use my pump to get the water from the jugs into the tank. Installed 3 tees and 2 cutoff valves. Now all I have to do is move a couple valves and pump water from any source, bucket or drum into the tank. It just reverses the plumbing.

I also replaced the cheap Artis pump with a 50 psi Shurflo.
Can empty a 5 gallon bucket in 1 1/2 minutes.
