The 12 should be fine. You will lose some GPH from the head height and the restriction of the SCWD.

Thanks Darin. Did anyone ever find out how much flow loss is lost with a SCWD?

The Mag9.5 at 4ft head height flows approx. 800gph. Does the scwd drain 200gph?

A Mag12 at 4ft head height flows approx. 1050gph. Do you thing a scwd will drain 450gph?

If the scwd will drain 450gph, then getting a mag12 will work. Anyone??? Need to know soon. Thanks.
