This head pressure calculator will determine the total dynamic head pressure placed on the pump. The more pressure the less GPH your pump will produce.
The amount of tubing used to pump water from the pump to the pond, the height of your waterfall, diameter of your tubing, bends, fittings including ball valves and gate valves, etc, will effect the GPH produced.
To find the equivalent lift, taking into account the resistance of the piping and fittings, results will be adding the original height plus the resistance of the pipe. This number will be equal to the total lifting height that your pump is expected to pump to the top of the waterfall. Use the following example for your waterfall:
