Could you switch you check valve and ball valve above the T. Then turn the ball valve so you could reach thru the bottom to use it?

It can matter. I agree 100% with mrc. Check valves work better under higher pressure. Having it above the ball would let the pressure of the whole tank force the check valve off even if the ball valve was mostly closed.

Is the low check valve vertical? Hard to tell on my iPod.

Thumbs up!

Okay then I'll switch the 2 around.. I have the one check valve vertical and the other one(near the pump) going horizontally

Better to have it vertical if possible but it may depend on the valve.
