Hi all, I know there's some sort of formula but can't locate.
650gpm, rise 10', run 40' diameter PVC needed, minimum?
I am not sure that either pump will be strong enough to give any meaningful flow a 10'. Check the manufacturer's performance curves for these pumps.also same data for 950gpm please
Here are a few formulas used in determining pump performance:Hi all, I know my pump pumps b/c I've been using it for 2 years with 2" corrugated piping, which I'm replacing with PVC.
On a different topic, someone said larger diameter is always safer. However, there must be a maximum diameter as well as a minimum diameter. To illustrate what I mean, lets exaggerate for the sake of argument and say we'll use a 2-foot diameter sewer pipe hooked up to the pump, given the specifications I gave earlier. The flow would never make it. It would be interesting to find the formula for max diameter as well
