Basic Pumper Operation Question
I have a basic question that I would like to have answered.
* How do you hook up double laid 3" (2 1/2" couplings) hose supply line to the pumper for supply operations?
My answer is you take a siamese ("Y" adapter) with 2 - 2 1/2" intakes on a 5" stortz adapter that connects to the 5" intake on the pumper.
Is this correct or am I totally wrong. I would like a general idea if this is what people that lay double 3" do. (I know it would be much easier to lay 5")
I was told by a person to put one 3" supply line in the 2 1/2" intake. (Which is fine, I agree you can do that.) Then take the other 3" supply line and place that on the 2 1/2" discharge and let the pump go, and start pumping. (I guess his idea on doing this was to put more pressure on the hose (intake side) to flow more water?) (I DON'T AGREE WITH THIS.) Am I wrong?
Please if you could let me know how you would lay double 3" supply line let me know.
