Help???!!!
I’m replacing an existing feed which I inherited from previous owners
The waterfall has 6 water feed points and the pipes are old, brittle and insufficient
What is the best way to split the water from the pump flexible pipe to give equally forceful flows without damaging the pump by reducing the flow too much and overworking the pump?
Sounds complicated I know but basically the pump is strong enough but the pipes all need updating
Any advice gratefully received

Welcome to our group!

Can you post some pictures so we can visualize what you are working with? Makes it easier to give couch advice.

This is how it's running at the moment
It desperately needs cleaning down which is obviously the first plan
There should be 6 flows running out of the top similar to these two

The easiest way is to cut into the lines and add valves. But why does it have 6 points? If you start the flow from the top wouldn't it act as a stream should act?
