    Vitch: A simple and easy to remember rule of thumb regarding water piping is: By doubleing the pipe size, four times the volume is possible at the same pressure.
    Example: If 15 gallons per minute
    is flowing through 1/2″ diameter piping system, 60 gallons per minute would flow through the same piping system if it were 1″ in diameter at the same pressure.
