I am currently designing a lift station for a small subdivision. I have calculated the flow into the wet well to be 36.4 gpm (it is a very small system). The diameter of the force main leaving the wet well is 3 inches. I was able to calculate the total dynamic head which then allowed me to choose my pump from the Flygtt pump selector. My question now is how do I go about sizing the wet well or calculating the cycle time if I have two of the same pumps which will be ran in a lead/lag system?
