We had a heating system freeze and break last winter. I am looking for (or someone can probably calculate it easily) how many GPM a 3/4 copper line will flow unrestricted with 80 PSI? I looked for a calculator online, but no joy... Thanks-

Got it, thanks Nesi- We dumped 204,000 gallons of water into the basement of that house when the heating system broke. We were wondering how long it had been broken for.

According to the link, 3/4 copper with 80 PSI can pump 36 GPM. Thus 204,000 could have came out of the heating system in about 4 days.
