Overflow rates (fluidics help please)
I have two 1.5" overflows on a Tenecor tank that feed down into my sump. The sump is not located directly under the tank, but in a room right behind the tank (about 2.5 feet away horizontally). I was told by someone at Tenecor that the 8X per hour rating that these overflows are rated at are based on the sump being directly under the overflows.
My question: How much slower will the overflows run since the overflows run not just down but horizontally as well???? I am hoping it is negligible.
