Is there any information about the head pressure of the Dosing Pumps?

I'm considering an automatic water change system that draws water from the sump with one pump and pushes it down three feet into the crawl space, 20' horizontally, then up four feet to the laundry drain. Then another pump to pull water from the laundry room 20' away also through the crawl space.

Would this be feasible with the DP-4?

Thanks!!

Hi Chris,

The DP-4 is better suited for dosing small amounts over shorter distances. It may work but this setup will likely put undue stress on the dosing heads.
