    hi guys i want to add a ATS onto my system. what i want to know is can i run the outlet from my chiller into the spraybars of the ATS. screens will be 2 no off about 300x300, the chiiler pump is 1000 l/h. is this advisable, is the pump flow rate too low. my other option is to add a 3200 l/h pump with a tee and ball valves with about a 1000 l/h to the chiller and the rest to the ATS.

    I agree with Riaan, as long as you'll be able to cover your screen with water on both sides it will be fine.
    I'f got a 1500l/h pump on my my ats and it's doing well,no need to go extreme.
