Tunze power supply questions.
REceived my order yesterday and have follwoing questions:
-Replacement power supply for Tunze 6105 came with only the 24v jumper
shouldn't it come with a set of jumpers?
my old power supply had the 12 and 18 V jumpers only. is it safe to use24 v jumper on my 6105 I ahve since around 2 years. (label on motor block is damaged so can't read the voltage it handles.
how much flow will I gain with the 24 v jumper and will that shorten the lifespan of the powerhead? do I have to upgrade to the larger flow cover if I use the 24V jumper?
is it ok using a smaller jumper from old power supply with new power supply for smaller tanks?
Replacement power supply for 6105 came with a set of jumpers up to 24 V. motor block has 10-24 v on it. how much flow will I get with 24V jumper?
is it safe to use the 24 which is the max the powerhead can handle?
new 6105 came with the larger flow cover (and the smaller one) and with 12-18 and 24 V. how much flow will I get with the 24v and will it affect lifespan of powerhead.
Sorry for the load of questions but I need this cleared to be able to run the new pumps and the older pumps that haven't been working.

The power supply will have a small bag in the white box it came in with the other 2 jumpers, you can use 12, 18 or 24V. 24V is needed to get the maximum flow of 13000lph.
The wider flow cover only changes the pattern, with the small one the flow is about .75 meter wide and reaches about 2m, with the wide one it is about 1m by 1.25m at 24V, less at the lower voltage.
