    You would have to look at pool pumps for that kind of size, but why would u want that anyways

    yeah. whats the purpose of a 4" inlet? it will only cause you problems. you want a smaller inlet so you can suck the water up without getting air pockets.

    you will want to use a reducer to go from 4" to 1" or whatever your pump inlet is. then you can always expand into 4" pvc on the outlet.

    Great post! I would use the flat sink drain plumbing washers instead of O-rings. They can't " squeeze out " when you tighten them up.
