Title: Pipe and pump for open loop system
Post by: dbass999 on October 16, 2006, 01:17:43 PM
Iíve ordered an WRB05. Iím planning to use my river in an open loop system. Can you advise about pump and pipe size? I canít find any information for open systems. The whole pipe length will be 40m and Iím wondering what pipe diameter will be the most efficient and what size pump will be necessary. Presumably a wider bore pipe and a smaller pump would work for an open system as compared to a closed?
many thanks...
