Today we tried the smaller impeller (right). Had to drill a small hole, but no big deal.
Result >> spread width was less than 2/3 normal. Maybe 10 feet at best. So we installed it on another T3000. Same thing >> narrow spread pattern. That's all we know for now.

Right = Spyker sent this to us yesterday (thank you). 4 straight fins. 10 1/2 inches. Also has 4 holes in it. ??? I'm concerned that it is only 10.5 inches in diameter, as well as 4 holes in it.
We will test the new Spyker impeller very soon -- not sure if the holes will be a factor or if the smaller size will make a difference. My guess is...it will, cuz smaller impellers usually mean narrower spread pattern.
