Default water pump head pressure?

Isn't the amount of "head" that a pump has the amount of vertical feet in can push water before it levels out?

3.1ghz achieved. :cool:

yes, that it is.

it is actually used for estimating how much pressure drop the pump can handle as it pushes the fluid thru your loop. each water block/inline sink/fitting has a pressure drop associated with it. the more resistance there is to fluid flow, the greater the pressure drop. 90* turns, lenths of tubing, and diameter constrictions also contribute to the total pressure drop.

i can give u more info if your interested
