Hydraulic total pressure

Total pressure is a sum of the static pressure and the dynamic one, and is said to be the same along a pipe/duct.
In the water pipe gauge (static) pressure is maximal after the pump and minimal at the pipe outlet, but the speed and the density being the same, the dynamic pressure is the same everywhere. So, the total pressure is different at different points ?

Yes: In a real-world situation, the stream of water loses energy as it flows, due mostly to friction and viscous losses. This is why pumps require input energy.

Does total pressure stay the same everywhere in a closed system ?

Not according to Russ.
The loss as the flud moves down the pipe is called, well, head loss.

The TP at discharge is not = the TP at suction ?
Why ?

That's the entire purpose of a pump.

because u give the pump electric power and it transimits it to hydraulic power
thats the reason YURI

I got it so: the first statement (in my OP) - which one can meet not once in the writings on the subject - is true conditionally for only short lengthes of a system where head losses are considered negligeable.
Thank you!

my friend we always here neglect secondary losses like fittings and valves but length no and also it depends on the length ur talkin abt
