    Re: pump size

    Unless you are pumping some serous head you would be better of financially with a pump half or less that size. my pool is larger than yours and I am running a much smaller pump so I get better filtration, longer pump run time and a lot less electricity.

    My pump is 3/4hp with low head loss and pumps roughly 10,000 litres/hour which would be fine for your setup too, you could even go smaller 1/2hp and 8,000 litres/hour unless you have extras like fountains, solar etc. How many skimmers/returns and main drains?
