Is this 2-pipe buffer tank diagram equivalent to closely spaced Ts?
A recent thread made me reconsider by my 4-pipe buffer tank. Looks like the 2-pipe method will save me a fair amount of space, piping, and eliminate my mixing problem but I'm curious about the circulation details. Is the 2-pipe with close, generously-sized connections equivalent to closely spaced Ts? I attached a drawing to illustrate what I'm thinking. Can someone confirm?
Regarding the Ts going into the buffer tank, I plan to use a street tee since I can't get any closer than that. Or is there a best practice that suggests I should use a close (or short) nipple and regular T?
Thanks everyone. I'm really learning a ton here.
