I’m now committed to converting from flex tubing to hard pipe for my DC system. I’ve already bought 4” schedule 20 pipe and the 45’ elbow fittings accordingly. I’ve also built a Thien separator that sits atop a 20 gal steel garbage can. Next I have modified my Delta DC so that the impeller outlet now blows straight into the (added) Wynn filter and bag. Here are my questions:
1). What’s the best way to hook up the impeller intake to the separator? The impeller intake is currently 6” or it also has the standard 6-4” wye fitting. My separator fittings are currently 4”.
2). Given that I have 4” separator fittings, should I somehow adapt to 6” ? I do not think I can fit 6” connectors on this size garbage can…
Your advice is appreciated!
