    Return pump ok?

    So I read I should have flow between 4-6 x total capacity. So I figured this should be more than enough. Is the Jebao decent quality? ??

    You need to factor in head pressure and it should be oversized so you can throttle it back with a valve.

    Just be give you an idea I use a Dc-2000 in a 20 at 10" of head pressure.

    If you need a pump I have an NJ-4500 here.
