V jet = sqrt(2*g*h)
Q = Vjet * Anozzlesm/sec * 100 -> cm/sec
cm^3/sec / 1000 -> l/sec
Disclaimers:
Head is effective head after pipe and fitting losses.
Efficiency values are only guesses, not claimed.
At some combination of head and nozzle diameter the hydraulic force on the
buckets will be too great for the plastic buckets. I don't know what these limits
are yet.
