Those of you that have done the Mod by putting in a different tube, did you just leave the filter screen off completely, by the looks of the pics the screen was just removed. Also while looking at the tank I see the drain valve is also high on the tank. My tank still had a lot of water in it, but wouldnt drain because of the location. Do any of you think it would be possible to screw in a tapered drain plug in the bottom, so the water could be completely drained. Just a question. thanks

I did this mod a few years ago. As far as trying to put a drain plug on the bottom, I don't think I would screw around with that. I'm afraid a person might make more trouble for himself then what you wanted.
When you replace the tube that's in the the tank (the one with the filter), bend the copper tube like stated in paines link, or maybe just a little more, then you will be able to "pump" most of the water out. Won't need the lower drain point then. I have a filter on the pump so I wasn't concerned about losing the one in the suction line at the tank.
I posted on this mod when I did it, along with pics.
