Discharge Length of Horizontal Pipes

Discharge volume and discharge length of horizontal pipes

The relationship between discharge volume and discharge length - 4 inches loss in elevation - for horizontal pipes are indicated below.

Example - Horizontal Pipe and Water Discharge Length

If 100 gpm water is discharged from a 2 1/2" horizontal pipe - the discharge length can be estimated from the chart above to approx. 13 inches.
