Discharge volume and maximum length for horizontal pipes.

*1 gal (US)/min =6.30888x10*^{-5}m^{3}/s = 0.227 m^{3}/h = 0.06309 dm^{3}(litre)/s = 2.228x10^{-3}ft^{3}/s = 0.1337 ft^{3}/min = 0.8327 Imperial gal (UK)/min*1 in (inch) = 25.4 mm = 2.54 cm = 0.0254 m = 0.08333 ft*

### Example - Horizontal Pipe and Length of Water Discharge

If *100 gpm* water is discharged from a 2* 1/2"* horizontal pipe

- the discharge length can be estimated from the chart above to approximately *13 inches*.

### Example - Estimating Volume Flow with Discharge Length

The volume flow from a pipe can be estimated by measuring the horizontal length of the discharging flow.

If the discharge length from a 2* 1/2"* horizontal pipe is measured to 13 inches

- the volume flow discharged can be estimated to approximately *100 gpm*.
