Pressure in pipes related to pipe size and pump for water filtration system

  1. May 31, 2009 #1
    Hi Guys

    I am trying to use a water filter in line with a 12V water pump rather than off the mains.

    The water filter requires 10psi minimum and a maximum of 125psi, I am using 15mm copper pipe and the pump is 800mm from the water filter.

    I have not yet decided on a pump yet as this is why I'm trying to do the calcs. I would be very grateful for the required formulae, should I calculate including friction in pipes.

    Please Help

    Many Thanks
