I was wondering what size of hose is equivalent to pumping through 2-6 inch hoses? I was told its friction loss is double that of 7 inch hose, so the flow would be the same as 7 inch hose. I did my own calculations and found it to be a little bigger than 8 inch. How do you calculate this setup? Thanks in advance!
