was restricting my flow because of the hard elbows. So I changed it to 3/4" vinyl tubing (you may want to do 1") So I have a piece that adapts the 1/2" pump thread to 3/4" vinyl tubing then at the top of the tank I have the vinyl tubing attached to Locline plumbing flow director setup that I ordered online. My flow increased dramatically.
there is a photo on this thread.
So the mag nozzle is a 1/2", that means i need to find somthing that converts the 1/2" to a 1"
Then connect the flexible 1" tube and bring it up to my tank.
Then find a Y splitter that splits the 1" into two
How come all the Loc Y Splitters are biggest is 3/4"? Where can i find one that is 1" that will split to either two 1" or two 1/2"...?
I dont want to use a T because it will restrict my return flow...
