    I think I've got caught up with all you guys wanting copies of our narrative. If I missed you, let me know.

    Fortsutphen, I sent it to both your addresses to make sure.

    I did my pricing based off a certain companly that rhymes with "Harley" and their online catalog. When we did the bidding, I ended up with considerably lower prices on all bids, even with a price increase while we were waiting to hear. In the end, I have about $9K in excess funds I have to figure out how to spend. Well, I have to decided, there's a lot of ideas for the $5K and beyond that.

    What do you base that on? There's no facts to support that generalization. At equal pressures, a 6" diameter port flows 44% more water than a 5" diameter port. So if I take a strong pump that happens to cavitate at 1,000 GPM with a 5" valve & hose, I can logically assume that it would flow about 1,440 GPM with a 6" valve & hose.

    While I haven't tested a 5" connection, I can tell that reducing from a 6" to a 4" restricted flow from 1,542 GPM to 942 GPM.

    I didn't mention anyone using 6" LDH, and I don't appreciate you trying to put words into my mouth.

    I mentioned using 6" HARD SUCTION HOSE, and buying intake valves to match.

    The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of 'liberalism' they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened. --Norman Mattoon Thomas, 6 time presidential candidate for the Socialist Party of America
