Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

There are 231 cubic inches in a gallon, and the cross sectional area of the pipe is pi*6^2 = 36pi,  therefore:

(231 in^3 / gal)(400gal / min)(1 /  36pi in^2) = 817 inches per minute

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
