My electric kettle has 3 ports... Output for the pump with a short dip tube to there bottom.. One for the electric heating element.. and one for whirl pooling... They all sit at the bottom, same elevation... I put an elbow and tried some barbed SS fittings trying to get it to really spin... I eliminated the barbed fittings, just left the elbow and alls well in my brew world.. Sneezles61
By the way... What is TEB?
