    Red face New homemade swim spa

    I've just constructed a 14'x7'x4' steel swim spa powered by two large pumps. I expect that the 8 jets, attached to two manifolds will produce somewhere between 300 and 400 gpm but given that the spa is not up and running yet, I'm curious to know if anyone can comment on my anticipated water flow. I adopted the river flow design so the water is collected at one end and pumped out at the other.

    Filtration is thru a standard cartridge type filter and a pond UV filter. Heating will be from my 740 gallon solar reservoir.

    Any and all queries or comments are most welcome.

    14' x 7' x 4' made of 1/8" steel re enforced with 1"x3" tubing at 3 levels along the side. Total of 6 panels each 7'x4'. Insulated with 1.5" standard house insulated Corning board. Heated primarily by a heat exchange radiator connected to my solar heated 740 gallon reservoir. River system design powered by 2 pumps thru 8 jets.
