I've been getting conflicting opinions about what rpm's I should be running my brand new pentair VS-3050 pump.
I've got a 12K gallon pool and the skimmer is about 35 feet from the equipment and is a straight shot. It's a pretty standard pool with no spa and is basically a rectangle with a 6foot deep end. The filter is a pentair 420 cartridge (150 GPM). We are using a vacuum cleaner and it is using one of those skimmer\main drain setups where most of the suction is thru the skimmer and nothing really goes thru the main drains. We also have an intellichlor IC40 (my pool guy told me to buy the big one) which from what I read needs at least 25GPM to operate.
Can someone recommend a ballpark rpm setup for this configuration? I've got one guy telling me about 2300 rpm and one guy telling me that 1000 rpm is fine. I'm sure it's more scientific than this....
