    Understood bro... but er, so now assuming I got my flow reduced for my chiller needs to about 1200 litre per hour, will the reduced flow ok  for my tank cos recommended is 2000litre per hour? If its ok, will it be better to get a smaller return pump, and plumb in all in line.. sorry again cos ask too many questions...

    1. I will go with a higher hp chiller that match your return pump flow rate so u save on running additional pump. Another pump another heat source and also paying more for electricity since pump runs 24/7. A higher hp chiller will give u better efficient cooling plus future tank upgrade option.
    2. if the above is not an option then use a additional pump rated for your chiller.

    Thanks bro JD... I ever thought about that, but how will I know how much flow is going to the chiller? Sorry if this sounds very noob..hehe..

    To determine the flow u hav to estimate liao. 2000l/hr after gg thru all the bends and height, prepare for approx 10% drop in flow. Tat leave u with 1800l/hr, using the valve at half turn will give you approx 900/hr. Turn 3/4 shd put u at approx what you need.
    Unless u have precise measuring equipment like flow meter or use a 5L container and measure how long to fill then do the math> too tedious.
