As many of you know, I have a pump and filter that are large for the size of my pool. (I, in my ignorance, and wanting a clean pool, asked for it, thinking bigger was better) They seem to work fine, but I'm thinking of reconfiguring one of my pipe runs and started to wonder -- in a perfect world, what would the setup look like?
Now, I have tried to calculate flow rates, turnovers, head pressure, etc. The math is beyond me.
Could one of you pro's help me figure out what I have, and if I could do it over, what I should have?
Here's what I can tell you:
AGP 12' round, 52" deep. Around 3800 gal.
Pump: Waterway supreme hi-flo 1.5hp Single speed.
Filter: 175 lb sand filter w/ zeo
Everything is plumbed with 1.5" hard PVC.
Tag on the filter says it's rated to 50lbs pressure. Pressure gauge usually reads 13-15.
As I said, pool usually looks pretty good. I keep the lid on when I'm not swimming, to keep the dust out, and run the pump 4-6 hrs. a day.
If you need other info, I'll do my best to help, but that's what I can give you based on the equipment labels.
