    Enough Water Flow???

    Hi all! You can see the specs of my pool in my signature. I'm wondering if my 1.5hp whisperflow 2 speed pump will create enough water flow for my set up. Will I be able to run all of my features at once with the pump on high and have enough pressure/flow?

    Also, just out of plain curiousity, what is my max GPM flow with my current set up? What would it be if I had a pentair sand dollar 60 sand cartridge? I know cartridge filters have more flow, just curious how much extra in my scenario.

    Thanks as always!

    You can run the cove but you would need the pool returns and deck jets off.

    A Sand Dollar would restrict flow significantly since it's only 1.5" plumbing internally. It also has an MPV with adds to the head loss and the sand bed vs the cartidges offers a significantly more restrictive path.
