bigger means more water running through it.

If your resivour is rather small, i'd use 3/8... if it's bigger, go with 1/2... the more water you have within the system, the more you have to dissapate the heat with. Also, make sure your pump can handle 1/2. anything with about 250 GPH or better should work fine. I use 1/2 and it works wonderfully.

i read an article somewhere. basicly said that if you already have a 3/8 system, the performance increase isnt worth an upgrade. but if your building a new one, go with the . so there you go. have fun and good luck.
