The IntelliCenter™ Control System will not run lower than **15 GPM**. The lower you can establish this flow rate the better the energy savings. Maximum Flow (GPM): The pump’s maximum flow rate can be set from 15-134 GPM. This is generally the flow rate required for backwashing the pool filter.

## Secondly, how long should I run my Pentair IntelliFlo pump?

**90 GPM**in most pools. It requires less maintenance and is highly efficient.

## Just so, how do I convert my pool pump from RPM to GPM?

For example, if the required motor speed is 900 rpm and the nominal speed is 1,000 rpm, the answer is 0.9. **Multiply your answer by the nominal flow rate for the pump to give the converted flow rate**. For example, if your answer is 0.9 and the nominal flow rate is 4,200 GPM, the converted flow rate is 3,780 GPM.

## How do I program my Pentair Intelliflo VSF?

## What is RPM in pool pump?

Most pool pump motors operate at 240 volts and generate **3,450 rpm** when running at full speed (based on standard U.S. electricity, which is 60hz). A variable-speed pump motor offers an operating range of 172 rpm to 3,450 rpm.

## How do you use Pentair Intelliflo variable speed pump?

## How many rpms should I run my pool pump?

Suction cleaners typically run at around **2200-2400 RPM**. Heaters require 20 to 40 Gallons Per Minute (GPM) so might run at around half speed or a little higher. You would probably want to run your Spa at up to full speed, 3450, for maximum effect.

## 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 is RPM and GPM?

**Most gallon per minute (GPM) to revolutions per minute (RPM)** conversions relate to pumps. For example, if you’re designing a pump to recirculate a spa, you need to know the speed at which the pump must run, given the size of the pump’s cylinder.

## 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.

## How do you calculate gpm for a variable speed pool pump?

## 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 RPM is IntelliFlo?

As part of the Eco Select brand, the IntelliFlo i1 pump is an eco-friendly, energy-saving equipment choice from Pentair. NOTE: The chart above demonstrates performance rates at factory preset speeds of **750 RPM, 1560 RPM, 2350 RPM and 3110 RPM**.

## 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.

## What RPM should I run my Pentair pool pump?

Generally, I run my equipment at **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.
