Default Suggested loops and Pump

Hey guys, i have few questions regarding loops and pump. First i have 120.3 RAD and by that i can easly choose what kind of pump im going to use.

Second option for me is, i have 2x 120.1 rad and my question is, ist ok to make a loop on 2 rads? and if im going to use that, any kind of good pump that you can suggest?

Yes it is fine to use 2 different radiators in one loop as long as the rest of equipment isn't too restrictive. For pumps either an MCP655/Laing D5 or an MCP355/Laing DDC3.2. If you choose the later I would suggest grabbing a Petra's Top for the pump. Improves performance by quite a bit.

@charlie

Oh i didnt noticed that one in ncix, hehe, but anywayz, you think that might be better to use in 2 120.1 rad or better to use the laing DDC3.2?

The Petra top increases the performance of the pump, but also allows you to change barbs from 3/8" to 1/2". The 355 pump is very capable - no worries here.
