    Jip Jigsaw has it. The idea is that your coldest cooling water is at the outlet so your product is chilled as low as possible. If you introduce the cold watter where the product is the hottest you only cool to a midpoint where the to fluid Temps are as close as possible to each other.

    Hope the pic helps

    Come to think of it, one can control the cold water usage
    far more accurately, this because the area where cold meets
    hot is far greater at a constant temperature along this area.

    Also I find that I need a lot of cold water supply

    It will still work as is, but "up to 15% more efficient" for a simple swoparound means less ice to buy for minimal effort

    Changed the hoses on the condenser. Now the pump seems to stress
    just a bit more. Will try minimize the elevation(head), the pump has to
    cope with. Difficult to say if there is any improvement at this stage.
    Did my 3rd still run today. Again very impressed with the results. Also
    I'm finding more and more re occurring stages that one can rely on and
    repeat with future batches in mind. Today I managed one full liter from
    a 14 liter wash. I'm ok with that. The gin was quite clear after the
    second still, 85 proof, till I added water toning it down to 43abv. It turned
    milky.Why is this? Any comments will be appreciated,..,..

    You water wasn't clean. Go to a hardware store and buy distilled water they use in batteries, and use that to water down your booze.

    Supposedly something to do with fusal oils (excessive tails?) or high minerals in the water.

    Sounds like you need to compare notes with @Treeman

    Add some pink colouring - then you'll have craft gin
