I'm just trying to clarify the difference between putting the reservoir "above" the pump, as opposed to "before" the pump.

If I have a loop with the the reservoir below the pump, yet before it in the loop, is this a bad/risky idea? Gravity>pump reliability?

Thanks!

It would be better to have the res physically higher in the case than the pump for the reason you stated, gravity helps prime the pump and makes the pumps job easier
