# Friction of Water Pumped Into 6in Tube from Chamber

Homework Statement
Would the friction even be any significant?
Relevant Equations
N/a
This is a deep well & the dimensions of the bottom chamber is 5x1x5ft which holds 187 gallons. The pump is located in this chamber with a piston/plunger only going up to the top of this chamber at 5ft.

The pump pushes 187 gallons into a 6inch diameter pipe which is 1000ft long = 1,470 gallons.

Will the friction of pushing or pumping this water from the large chamber into the smaller 6inch tube be at all significant compared to replacing the bottom chamber to being the exact size 6inch tube, & pumping the same amount of water? (187gallons) Thanks! I attached a drawing

This is a judgment call, but it doesn't seem to me like this could possibly be significant.
