Most of these tanks I use are 4 foot wide, by 5 or 6 foot high, or 500 gal tanks.

    Don't you mean to say one gallon of settlement to 10 gallons of flow? Also, I agree with 2500gph being "bare minimum" flow through 4" pipe. I like to figure on 3500gph with a 1" draw down as a better recommendation.
