    You all know the removable nozzle on the tip of sunsun pumps used to direct water flow...

    My question is: Does it have any benefit besides directing flow? Like longer flow range?

    I never used them.. As Xero said they restrict the flow and make the flow more focused than spread out

    Good to know, I wont use them then, I've got 2x 12ooo L/h already and even they bug me. Cant wait to get Vortec, smallest pump for the most flow imo.
