Well=== pure water flows at 5.1 gpm thru 1/4 pipe , now valves have a slight orifice to slow the flow down some as a 1/4 valve most likely has a 1/16 orifice value , but that's just an educated guess as I don't know what valve u have , also im assuming your using pure water with a specific gravity of 1.0000 (yes it effects the rate) say hydraulic oil has a value of .0898 this will also slow the flow thru the valve

If a pump moves at 90 gallons per minute , what is the volumetric flow rate in units of cubic inches per second?


Assuming US gallons, 346.5 cubic inches per second.

The number will be slightly different for Canadian or Imperial gallons.

High pressure due to back flow preventer


Add a variable regulator to the house side of the check valve. Also add a pressure tank between the regulator and the hot water heater.

Can you use a draper submersible pump for a garden irrigation system to use with several sprinklers, does it provide enough water pressure on the outlet?


Here's how to tell.
Connect a tee to the outlet of the pump.
Install a pressure gauge in the tee.
Install a valve after the gauge.
Open the valve and start the pump.
Once water flows, close the valve slowly until you get 50 psi on the gauge.
Have a 5 gallon bucket nearby and measure how long it takes to fill the bucket at 50 psi.
If it fills the bucket in 30 seconds, you can attach heads to the pump that combined consume 10 gallons per minute.
Let me know how you do.

6.5hp 80gallon cfm psi?


MY DEAR FRIEND;
GALLON IS TO MEASURE THE VOLUME,BUT CFM(CUBIC FEET PER MINUTE) IS USED FOR FLOW.AND ALSO PSI IS FOR PRESSURE.THUS THEY ARE NOT ANY WAY RELATED.
IF IS IMPORTANT TO KNOW THOSE FACTORS, ESTIMATE THE TIME IT TAKES TO FILL THE TANK AND MEASURE THE FLOW AND READ THE MAXIMUM PRESSURE AND THOSE WILL APPLY

The one drip per second is about correct, it's the water vapour coming from th combustion of the gas that condenses But is shouldn't puddle, it should completely drain immediately so something is wrong there - most likely it was badly installed.
The rest of the puddles are also created by a bad install: an bad seal at the pipes connections.
That nut on top is the safety valve, nothing should go out of there. If there is water seeping from it then the expansion tank is completely full and that is dangerous, it can fail.
I must say that the entire system has been installed by monkeys. It should be dismantled and all the connections redone by someone who really knows how to do it properly.

No problem, just looking for gal. per minute flow rate


It uses 1.2 gallons for each wash or rinse action in a cycle.  The water only runs until the 1.2 gallons amount is reached and then that water recycles through the pump for the duration of the action.  Start the dishwasher and time how long it takes until the water stops filling (not the entire time of the action).  Divide 1.2 by the number of minutes including seconds as a decimal fraction (i.e. 1 minute and 30 seconds = 1.5 minutes) to get the flow rate in gallons per minute (GPM).
