    Hi All,

    May I know what is the recommended / preferred pipe size to be used for the return pipe from pump chamber to the main pond? 2" pipe or 1 and 3/4"?

    Thank you,

    it depends on your pump outlet size of course, and how many you are using.

    Currently I am busy with moving house, the pond is under construction and I have not start looking for pump yet :-(

    My pond size is about 13' * 13' * 3' and if my conversion is right, it should be about 12.5 ton of water. And I am planning to have 1.5 times of water turnaround per hour. I guess it is not easy for you to provide recommendation.

    Get two Tsurumi 2.15*** 150W, will fit nicely with pond size and turnover you provided and require. Capacity abt 12tonne per hour at max. Outlet ( from pump) will then be 40mm.
