Pressure loss occurs when you have a small diameter over a long distance. If it's just a small section of the cooling lines it won't affect it. And when you're collecting product you'll find the valve is almost completely closed anyway.

Okay good info :text-thankyoublue:

I thing you are making it to complicated on mine the water comes out of the tap into the bottom of the pc out the top to the rc then out of that to the garden or fruit trees
I have a temp gauge on the rc water and above the rc as soon as it heats up i can dial in the temps i want 29.6 rc and 77.4 above aA mate came around to see a run he was amazed how i didn't touch a thing for the run he has a t 500 and he has to watch it like a hawk i have done a few runs :oops: no problem and if i want a striping run just no water in the rc
