Shouldn't apply, since it's a closed system. Theres's the same amount of water going 'down' as there is going 'up'. The weight of the water going 'down' cancels out the weight of the water going UP, therefore head calculations don't figure into it. The only thing the pump has to overcome is the friction of the water against the tubing walls, and the pressure created by the blocks.
