    When one side is throttled back the other side will feel the same load and reduce output?

    I am guessing it will work like that. If you throttle up or down the impact would be felt on both sides of the pump.

    Both sides run at the same speed head pressure notwithstanding best we can tell, although we've asked CoralVue for comment.

    Hmmm.... if the pump could run each side at different rates I would be in love. I understand the concept but would still need my manifold that I would love to get rid of.

    CoralVue told us: Although there are two separate outputs, They are joined by a central pump. Much like a big Gyre pump. So both outputs will produce the same amount of flow on each side which is managed from the controller but will require some sort of valve off each of the outputs to control the flow individually.
