They have performance curves showing their pumping characteristics just like any other centrifugal PUMP.

When you have a question on specific equipment, the best way to get a good answer is call the manufacturers.

I won't touch the first question because I don't want to get into a debate.
EDIT: Sorry...I didn't see and read all the responses before I posted my comments.

EDIT2: Just read the rules for membership. requires active professional. I'm a RETIRED plumbing engineer. So long!
You can ask for the board to review your trade and experience. Post a lengthy intro first.

@Diehard1st read this and click the link.


An intro is requested from all new members. In case you missed it, here is the link. https://www.plumbingzone.com/f3/.

The PZ is for Plumbing Professionals (those engaged in the plumbing profession)

Post an intro and tell our members where you are from, yrs in the trade, and your area(s) of expertise in the plumbing field.

This info helps members who are waiting to welcome you to the best plumbing site there is.

We look forward to your valuable input.

This one is from me : Write more than one or two lines, elaborate. Are you proud of your trade? Show it! Talk about the jobs you've done, the path you took to get where you're at as a trades person, the amount of time spent in plumbing school(s) or years before you were eligible to take the journeyman exam etc.

Anyone hear about the new nun who joined a convent that had a vow of silence? They were allowed to say only 2 words every 5 years.
So 5 years go by, and mother superior calls the new nun into her office. "It's been 5 years my child, what are your 2 words?" " Bed's hard" says the novitiate. "Thank you for sharing my child. Go back to your duties" says mother superior.
Five more years go by and mother superior summons her again. "What do you have to say now, my child?" "Food stinks" says the girl. "Thank you my child, go back to your duties."
Five more years, mother asks her what she wants to say now. "I'm leaving" she says.
"I'm not surprised" says the superior. "You've done nothing but complain since you've been here."
