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 |

## Similarly one may ask, how many GPH should my pool filter move?

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.

**1700 RPMs**for 10 hours. I run this with the saltwater generator set at 50% for 10 hours. In my case, 1700 RPM’s is the minimum I can do to reliably activate the saltwater generator and filter the pool.

## People also ask, what should my pool flow rate be?

Calculate the flow rate needed to achieve proper filtration. One turnover only filters 37% of the water. After a second turnover, 86% of the water has been filtered. It takes four turnovers to filter 98% of the pool water.

## How long should I run my Pentair Intelliflo pump?

The rule of thumb is generally **8 hours**, although it could be anywhere from 6-12 hours, depending on your pool’s size. Each pool is unique, so to keep your pool pump efficient and effective, you need to figure out exactly what your pool’s turnover rate is.

## What is the flow rate of a 1.5 HP pool pump?

This product by Hayward is a 1.5hp pool pump designed to pump up to **90 GPM** in most pools. It requires less maintenance and is highly efficient.

## How long should a variable speed pool pump run?

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 calculate pool pump flow rate?

**Divide the pool gallonage by the turnover rate to determine the minimum flow rate per hour.** **Divide that number by 60 to determine the minimum flow rate per minute**.

## How much flow should a pool skimmer have?

Skimmers typically require **4 inches of “travel” across the weir, or 3 inches for pools with auto-leveling systems**. That means the water level will be approximately halfway up the skimmer opening, where it flows over the weir.

## What size pump do I need for a 15 000 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.

## How do you calculate gpm on a pool pump?

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.
