are you talking 1200 drain or 1200 return? i will have 1200-1400 gph
draining. i was looking for between 600 and 700 gph
return after head loss. tehn add in ph for the rest of water movement.
i was under the impression that i needed roughly 20x water turn over for circulation. if im doing 600gph on the return and 2x 800 gph
on ph's i should be ok? or is the 15x-20x water movement generally just for the sump calculations?
