Near the pumps are 2 valves for each, labelled "pressure" & "suction". what are they for? And on the pumps themselves, there are sight glasses. Are they on the input or output of the pumps? The one on B stays half full, while A fills up. (Sorry it's sideways!)
Thanks!

I could never figure out those pressure and suction valves on mine.
The "Suction" valves are for shutting off the water on the "inlet" side of the pumps and the "Pressure" valves are for shutting off the water on the "outlet" side of the pumps. They allow you to isolate a pump for maintenance, etc..
