    HP is Horse Power
    SFHP is.....Service Factor Horse Power
    BEP GPM is.....?????
    BEP HEAD is.....?????
    Pool Volume is.....Pool Volume
    HP SFHP BEP GPM BEP Head Pool Volume (8hr Turnover)


    What is BEP an abbreviation for when used with GPM and HEAD?

    Many thanks......

    Is that the point on the pump curve where the pump is most efficient?
    Also, Is BEP GPM the number you would use to figure out the correct size filter?
    How do you find or calculate the BEP for a specific pump/motor?
