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.

## Similarly, how long should I run my Pentair Intelliflo pump?

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

## Just so, 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.

## What size pump do I need for my pool?

**Divide the pool volume by the number of hours that you would want the pump to be running**, so that would be 65,947.5 divided by 6. This would give you 10,991 which means your pump should be able to turn around this much water in 6 hours.

## How many gallons per minute does a 2 HP pool pump?

## 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 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**.

## 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.

## How many gallons per minute does a 3/4 HP pump?

Shallow Well Jet Pump System, 3/4 hp, 13/6.5 Amps, **9.6 gpm** Flow Rate @ 10 Ft. Lift @ 40 PSI. Country of Origin USA.

## How much flow should a pool skimmer have?

## 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%.

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

## How long should I run my Pentair variable speed pump?

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.
