The "return" to the tank

Recommended Posts

Hello All

I have a 1600 litre tank (wier setup), and running a 5t sump, with an ehiem +5000. I was thinking of getting a laguna 7500, my problem is the return (20mm). Would the return be to handle the extra 2500l without losing any flowrate? I got 2 down pipes (40mm).

Thx in advance.

I don't believe that the 20mm pipe will be handling the 5000l/ph as it is. To get a higher flow rate, rather then upgrading your pump I would upgrade your plumbing. Upgrading the pump will increase the flow (no where near an extra 2500l/ph), but the pressure on the pump to push the water through the pipe will not do it any good.
