    is the pressure loss on a looped main at furthest point from the water source in either direction half of what it would be at the end of a main that was the same linear feet but not looped?

    Figure the loss for half your flow in a pipe of the size and distance you have now. (the other half of the flow will be in the other half of the looped main)
