Another water flow question
Ok, when we get the 210 it's gonna be an "all-glass" RR, with megaflow. I am looking at the box that my husband has for his and it says that it has a max flow rate of 600 for each. My guess is because it's only one inch pvc
. When I read about the external pumps, like the dolphin 3000 it says to get the max flow rate, I should use 1.5" pvc
and that using one inch it cuts it down by half. So here's the million dollar question, can I go to HD
and replace it so that I get better flow rates, I want to completely elminate PH
's. Also can I buy the fittings I need to still use all the parts, such as the return nozzle? Or is there a better way of doing this?
