    Default Sump pumps, lost flow chart?

    Trying to figure out how much flow I'm going to lose using my pump,

    I have a Jebao WP-2000, rated 528gph and a overflow box rated for 600gph (looks like this one http://cse.f3images.com/IMD/feeds/CR1515_50.jpg)

    The pump is going to need to push upwards of about 3feet, threw 1inch tube to get back into the main tank.

    I remember seeing a chart online with the math to figure out how much flow is lost per inch of upwards travel but I can't seem to find it now.

    Hmmm....I think head loss is specific to the pump. Most pump manufacturers produce head loss charts for their pumps.
