    where to place the reducer?

    I'm running a household irrigation pump from a lake. The suction line is 2 inches and the the pump inlet is 1.5 inches. I have very limited space in which to make that last 90 degree turn and also reduce the line. Which of the two arrangements shown in this side-view diagram would be the best for limiting cavitation? Both have 5xd distance between the last turn or reduction and the inlet, but option A has a concentric reducer and a large radius 1.5 inch elbow while B has an eccentric reducer and 2" street elbow. The 2 inch pipe is coming up vertically from the ground, so I'm thinking the concentric reducer is okay for option A.
