## Also to know is, how many gpm do you need to run a pool pump?

What you’re looking for is a pump that will be able to pump all the water in your pool through the filter in no more than 8-10 hours. This typically looks likes **40 GPM (gallons per minute) for smaller pools and 80 GPM for larger pools**.

Pump Size | GPM (varies with plumbing) | Cost/Hour |
---|---|---|

1.0 HP | 60 |
$0.06 |

1.5 HP | 68 | $0.09 |

2.0 HP | 76 | $0.12 |

3.0 HP | 85 | $0.18 |

## Simply so, what RPM should a pool pump run at?

The filtrations system can operate at low water flow with typical motor speeds around **1000 RPM or less** depending on the size of your pool and how long you want to run the pump. Suction cleaners typically run at around 2200-2400 RPM.

## What is pool flow rate?

You find the right flow rate for your pool by calculating its capacity in gallons. Then, divide that number by your desired turnover rate, ideally six to eight hours. Divide that answer by 60 to find the minimum gallons per minute, or GPM, flow rate required to achieve the desired turnover rate.

## What is the flow rate of 1 hp pump?

## Is 1 HP pool pump enough?

Pool owners often mistakenly believe if they choose a 2 HP pump over a 1 HP pump, they are getting double the performance. **This is simply not true**.

## What size pump do I need for a 25000 gallon pool?

Calculate Flow Rate and Turnover

Flow rate is the number of gallons the pump moves per minute, and turnover is the minimum about of time to circulate all water through the filter. Your 25,000-gallon pool needs an output of **52 gallons per minute** to circulate the water once every eight hours.

## How do I know what GPM my pool pump is?

Most pool pump specifications are expressed in gallons per minute (GPM). So, to convert from GPH to GPM, **divide your GPH by 60 minutes** – 2531 GPH / 60 = 42.2 GPM.
