    Hi all. I hope you are all well.

    I am hopefully doing my last bathroom of the year as I am totally peed off with em. Well, I still have my 2 at home to do but that will hopefully be fun!

    I am installing a pump above a cylinder from a non stop flange. What's the best way to do the loop coming out of it and how to do the dip tube?

    Can you buy this dip tube as I cannot find it.

    Cheers

    Don’t need to fit a dip tube if it’s from the pump port / src port


    Just do a double bend with the benders eg u

    Neg head pump ?

    Normally just put a slight bend in a piece of tube

    Like this, minimum of 250mm. Not knowing which pump your fitting but salamander ask for them like this and I'd presume the other manufactures would too.

    I’m sure the grundfos pump i fitted needed 450mm loop min, but i may be wrong.
