If you have a 35,000 gallon pool and want a turnover rate of 10 hours, you will need a pump with a flow rate of 56 gallons per minute.

Pool Size (US Gallons) | Turnover (Hours) | Minimum Flow Rate |
---|---|---|

35,000 |
10 Hours |
58 GPM |

24,000 | 8 Hours | 50 GPM |

24,000 | 10 Hours | 40 GPM |

## Herein, how many GPH is my pool pump?

Determine how many gallons you need to pump per hour to clean all the water in your pool in eight hours. **Divide the gallons of water your pool holds (answer from step 1) by eight**. Using the example number of gallons previously given, this equation would look as follows: 24,000 gallons ÷ 8 hours = 3,000.

Table of Submersible Pump Stages vs HP vs Total Dynamic Head vs. GPM Flow Rate Capacity | ||
---|---|---|

Water Pump HP | Nr. of Pump Stages | GPM Flow Rate Capacity |

1 HP | 8 |
4 – 40 GPM (varies by TDH) |

1 1/2 HP | 11 | 4 – 40 GPM (varies by TDH) |

2 HP | 14 | 4 – 42 GPM (varies by TDH) |

## Moreover, how many gallons per minute does a 3/4 HP pump?

Horsepower: 3/4. Flow: **10 GPM** @ 100′ with 50 PSI discharge pressure.

## Is it better to run a pool pump at night or day?

**It’s best to run your pool pump during the day**

Not only does sunlight give fuel for algae to grow, it also destroys your pool chlorine and this is why you should always run your pool during the day!

## How many GPM is 2 HP pool pump?

The maximum flow into the pump will be **73 gallons per minute for each intake line**. The maximum flow into the pump is 42 gallons per minute for each 1.5 inch intake line.

## How many GPH is a 1.5 HP pool pump?

## Does a variable speed pool pump really save money?

**A variable speed pool pump could save you up to 90%* on your energy costs compared to a conventional single- or two-speed pool pump**. They are often quiet when running and many offer built-in programming features and better filtering capabilities.

## Can a pool pump be too big?

You might think bigger is better in terms of pump size, but **a pump that is too big can cause serious problems**. In the example above, the pool’s average depth is 8 feet. Now use the formulas below to determine the volume of water in your pool.

## Should variable speed pool pump run 24 hours?

However, it is important to note that **a variable speed pool pump should ideally be running 24 hours a day** to ensure proper and optimal water circulation. When your pool pump is not running, the water is sitting stagnant in your pool allowing bacteria to survive and grow.

## How do I measure the flow rate of my pool pump?

**Divide the total gallons of water in the pool by the turnover rate in hours**. Ideal turnover rate is between six and eight hours. To run the pump less time each day, lower the turnover rate. This will give you the gallons per hour or GPH.

## 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.

## How much power does a Pentair pool pump use?

IntelliFlo operates at an average of just 1/6th of a horsepower, using about **200 watts** of energy. Exclusive, variable speed capability builds potential savings up to 85%.

## What size pump do I need for a 15000 gallon pool?

A 15,000-gallon pool needs about **20 GPM output** if we want to run it 24 hours per day. Most people run their pool on an 8-hour on/16-hour off (stagnant) cycle.

## What size pump do I need for a 30000 gallon pool?

So, for a 30,000-gallon pool that runs continuously (24-hours), the formula is: **30,000 x 2 ÷ 24 ÷ 60 = 41.6** or rounded up it’s a 42 GPM minimum flow rate. To establish the max flow rate needed for your swimming pool, I like to go by filter surface area.
