    Return Pump Flow Calculator

    Anyone know of a more accurate return flow calculator available? From what I understand, you want your return pump to turnover your water 5-10x your DT or Total Water Volume. Has this changed? I'm sure my Ecotech M1 is doing this, but I want to be sure.

    Thanks!

    Ecotech Vectra M1 Return Pump, 200w Eheim Heater,

    And a whole lot of fabulous!

    The volume turnover is accurate, but I don't know of any specific resources for flow rate adjustments.
