Here’s a prime example of a popular 1400 gph DC controllable pump only actually pumping 250 gph at full throttle as measured by a flow meter. Head pressure loss due to height, plumbing restrictions and elbows do a lot to reduce flow, more than many are actually accounting for IMO.
So are these Vecta pumps extremely over rated or do the flow meters restrict flow by a fair amount? I just setup my new Vectra S1 with a 1in flow meter on a reefer525 and apex is reporting a max GPH of 252... This flow report on a 140gal tank is causing me concern. I've adjusted the FMM to...
