Re: Diameter of Diesel Water Exhaust Pipe

I would stick to the 3/4" to reduce back pressure on your pump. you are adding a longer line with more connection this will add some resistance in and of itself. That said you should be using the coolant side of your engine water not the raw water. Most water heaters are not designed to have raw or salt water in them. It works but you will be replacing the heater every 4-5 years if you do.
