I am just trying to understand your explanation, so please excuse my question, but I am an engineer and I can't help but get wrapped up in the small details.
I am trying to understand where you are getting the 5 inches of flow. If the pipes are all circular, then two 2 1/2" pipes aren't really equivalent to one 5" pipe. Two 2 1/2" pipes would be closer to one 3 1/2" pipe in cross sectional area.
That's hysterical, but I guess your right
. I had to google the formula for area of a circle as it's been a while so I wasn't sure I was remembering correctly, but I have to agree, cross section of two 2 1/2" pipes is roughly equal to one single 3 1/2"
I would think that going from 3" of flow to an equivalent of 3 1/2" area of flow is still an improvement, and certainly wouldn't restrict flow in any way, right?
