I'm designing a wet well (first time)and am seeking information on the distance from the inlet pipe to the wet well and suction pipe to the pump. To avoid influent vortexing from creating air pockets and thus caviation for the suction pipe, there should be a minimum distance between the two but I haven't found a discussion anywhere about what this distance should be. Anyone have a resource?
Thanks for the help, Renee
