You are installing a 1-1/2hp sump pump. I don't think it would be a good idea to restrict the pump down that much. It would certainly reduce flow output from the pump.

Tell us what you are planning to do with the pump and we can help you with what you might need. Is this a for irrigation or water supply for a house?
