I'd also like to see the Laguna pumps that are sold all over.

Although, I think I may have heard that they're manufactured by Sedra?

Do you have a URL for the manufacturer of the Laguna pumps? Or at least a lead on where a person can purchase them?

I'll work these in along with the Blueline pumps in the next version.

waterpipe.xls

Postby AndrewH » February 12th, 2003, 2:03 am

Hi,

Re: Waterpipe.xls

Great xls. Thank you for its availability.

It could be used for a greater variety of plumbing applications if the user could input an 'x pump' - eg. The user could put the residential tap pressure and associated values in and use this for plumbing purposes.

It could also include check boxes to allow different materials - and maybe even a roughness factor.

I bought a book caled Australian Pipe Friction Handbook - and I am finding the formulas very confusing. This xls you have created is excellent - with a little extras I could work out what I currently can't!

Thank you very much for making the xls available and all your efforts creating it.

I think you have the pump name and the GPH in reverse order for RK2 Industries pumps.

I would be extremely interested in knowing how loud each of these pumps is...I know this information may be difficult to gather, but if it is possible I think it would be extremely valuable.

I don't think you have the Silent Sea pump series listed. I've got a couple SS800 and an SS1200 which I've been very pleased with. Very reliable and Extemely quiet. Only draw back I've found is they add heat to the water. In my case that's a benefit since I live in Colo. and the aquariums are in a walkout basement. <S> Thanks for putting the list together, it's a terrific resource. Cheers, Bill

I'm a bit confused. I know I have looked at the pump guide before and it had a lot more pumps in it that it does now. Is there a more uptodate version that I have not been able to find. I was looking for specs on Iwaki pumps but they are not in the chart.

Thanks

Interesting...All the pumps show up under Mozilla 1.3 but not 1.4. That's a weird occurence.

You have mislabeled an Ehiem model. The last model on the list states "Eheim 1060" but it actually is the 1260 model. I believe all the specs are correct, just the wrong name.

I second the need for the Blueline pumps to be added if the information is available.

Can do. I'll see how soon I can get to it. MACNA's coming up fast so it may be a bit...
