I have 5/8" PEX piping (I.D. .475") throughout house. Am connected to city water supply (@ 40# psi) all new PEX pipe, all new valves....no leaks
In April, 57,000 gallons reportedly flowed thru the house. In May, 37,000 gallons reportedly flowed thru the house. In June, 11,00 gallons reportedly flowed through the house.
History, In January, February, and March...only 2000-3000 gallons flowed each month. From July to Dec, the flow rate was back to 2000-3000 each month.
Based on the 5/8" PEX pipe diameter, with the 40 psi pressure, how many gallons is possible to flow in one hour? With a 30 psi, whats the flow rate per hour? With a 50 psi, whats the flow rate...in gallons per hour for the 5/8" PEX?
How do I figure the flow rate, (gallons per hour) coming to/through the 5/8" PEX depending only, on knowing the cities psi at the time? The psi could be a variable.
