Airline/Air Pump Head Loss?
I am going to run airlines into my tank and although I know I can pump deep enough through the water I am concerned about the length of the run up to the tank rim. If I run another 8 to 10 feet past the rim to my pump, am I going to receive any significant loss of pressure/volume? This is on a Fusion 700 which is equivalent to a Tetra 100 or Rena 300/400 kinda? Definitely not a Super L:uft.
Thanks in advance!
Sometimes it is easier just to spend 20 minutes and build a shelf:-)
The ironic part is that I may never use it and the sterrilzer...
Can you explain that system a little more, is the tank through the wall? looks like it.
What is that long pipe coming down to your HVAC or hot water tank (which should not be clipped on there).
UV sterilizers are not really used in freshwater aquariums.
Am really confused at this setup and why everything is arranged the way it is.
So ya don't like my hangers? The clear pipe is for water changes. It is hung off of the water emergency pressure relief elbow which is 3/4 " cast iron. I don't think it should have any problem supporting a total of 1/2 pound of vertical weight. The other "hanger" is from a heavy metal body flange om the furnace. I believe in how it works and not appearances.
