right, I have the head loss chart for the pump I'm researching...but didn't know how to apply that to the math since the calculator uses other pumps...I guess I'll have to find a comparable pump in terms of flow and more importantly in terms of the flow curve of the pump and go off that...

is that right?

That is what I would do. You could also contact the manufacture of the pump you are wanting to use and give them your plumbing specs and see what they tell you.
