I am replacing my whisperFlo with a VS+SVRS IntelliFlo. Due to some pipe obstructions interfering with the SVRS top mounted controls, I have to relocate the pump by adding four to six 45 degree elbows (to go up over pipes and then back down) and maybe another 2-3 feet of pipe lenght. My piping is 2" diameter. Should I worry about introducing additional headloss due to the extra plumbing or is it negligible?
The issue I have is that I need to extend the pump to maintain a 12" straight suction pipe at the inlet (according to Pentair). Suggestions are appreciated. Thank you.
