Topic: Re: Reducing stress using looped piping

posed by 
This questions leaves us with too many questions.

Why was the line designed as eight inches?
What is the required flow rate?
Why does the pump only have a three-inch discharge if there is a reasonable velocity in the eight-inch discharge?
Why is there high stress on the discharge nozzle of the pump?
Why will the proposed loop eliminate that stress rather than add to it?
