just for giggles, i occassionally look at the property and the access to spring and stream water and wonder what i could do with it. i have several options and need some help with flow rate.

the "what if" part is that i cannot measure flow rate, i have altitude and head estimations, i can find info on how much power i can get from x amount of flow from x amount of head. there is no way for me to measure flow without pipe installed. so i would like to know how much flow different sizes of pipe would produce from a shallow intake over various distances.

how do i calculate how much flow i can get from different sizes of pipe assuming i can get all of the water i need from a shallow intake box?
