Bpb Posted November 6, 2013 Share Posted November 6, 2013 So I came across lots and lots of free plumbing supplies today. several 1" gate valves, one 3/4" gate valve, several feet of 1" and 3/4" pvc, a dozen or more elbows and 45 degree fittings, several unions ect. even came with an already assembled manifold for reactors off a return, only problem is none of it fits in my sump, so I was gonna use the non-cemented pieces to build my own. Here's the issue. Most of it is 1" stuff. My return pump is a Sicce Syncra 3. Never been used. has a 3/4" female output. If I want to use alot of this stuff and save myself about a hundred bucks, is there any problem with me using a 3/4" to 1" connection right at the pump output and building the whole manifold and everything out of 1" pvc and what not? Will that cause a problem? I need 300 gph for my main display at 4 foot head, and i also need to power a tlf150 for biopellets, and a brs dual reactor for gfo and carbon. Will widening all the pipes cause too much of a pressure drop? Someone help. I get the main idea of how to make one and have most of the pieces, just curious if this bit of water physics will be problematic. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
