    Water Feature Pump Size

    Hey Guys,
    Well finally got water in the new pool , hopefully all the equip will be up and running
    by this week.
    I connected the Pool water feature which is 2200mm Wide and 1800mm above the water line
    it is a stainless steel spillway that I only wanted to trickle down the feature wall.

    It runs on a Hayward super 11 316 pump 1 1/4, the flow seams to be to fast as it is not trickling

    Can anyone suggest what size pump I should be using.

    Can you manually restrict the outflow to slow it down? That won't hurt the pump.

    There would be a valve on the piping between the pump and the water feature.

    Hey Guys,
    Thanks I put a 3 way valve on the return line with a run off to a unused solar return
    worked perfect.......can adjust the flow of water easy.
    Thanks
