Well let us know how it works out. It looks like perforated stainless rim/ring has been covered by the screen (which will create the same barrier to flow as you have going up). In case the design...

psehorne,

thanks for the description - so the entire grain bed appeared to be rising up, from the pump flow, not just a small surface layer of grain? I'm trying to get an understanding of whether...

Thanks cwi, I had not understood that correctly - so 2.6 gpm at 0 feet of head, 0 gpm at 12 feet of head, and if we want to make a wag of the test snaps10 made, about 2gpm at a foot of head or so. ...

I think the pressure of the liquid pressing down onto the pump input helps make it easier for the pump to pump the liquid back up. Worst-case is where the pump needs to do all the work. Flow rate...
