    Engineer's honest opinion

    I cannot see clearly what size of pipe they are using from the live feed, but if they opted for smaller diametered pipe, I suppose headloss is not a concern there (i.e., high source psi, density difference, buoancy, volume expansion etc). The concern there may be they desire high travelling velocity to impede blockage or forming of crystals at lower fluid travelling speed.
