i've made an interesting discovery. Apparently golden waterproof pipes can move lava from a pump faster than liquiducts can, i'm really not sure why but its a very noticeable difference. can anyone else confirm this?
Gold waterproof pipes move at a rate of 1.6 Buckets per second (not tick). If you are emptying pumps, they are a good choice. However, they aren't entirely ideal in factory setups, when you have to micromanage your liquid around your engines and machines.
Good thing then, that I have a habit of putting exactly one BC tank besides the pump and adding the liquiduct to that. This is a good workaround, if you cannot update (server, problems with adf.ly (which now wants access to flash... forget it! I'll skip adf.ly and download directly now)).
