Thread: Pumps with RPM of 1725

  1. Back To Top    #1

    Pumps with RPM of 1725

    Are there any pumps made that are not dual speed that run only at 1725 RPM.?

    So many people run dual speed pumps and use the low speed of 1725 RPM most of the time..
    I was wondering can I buy a pump that ran only the 1725 RPM ?
    Thanks

    Mr ken,

    I've been following your posts but don't know enough to add anything except I'm concerned you're overthinking the pump issue. There are probably twenty pumps on the market that will work fine in your pool. If you've received advice from Mas985 on this forum.....go with it. He's da' man on hydraulics.

    You are right, I am overthinking....I don't want to hurt my 1 1/2 inch pipes, yet I want to have enough GPM to run the pool correctly...Sorry to be a nuisance. I appreciate the answers, yet sometimes they lead to more questions which are not all answered....
    Again my apologies

    Absolutely no need to apologize and I'm wrong if I came off sounding like I was scolding.

    My point was that there are many pumps that will work fine with your pool and plumbing. Get the correct power (probably around .75 full rated) and then decide if you want two-speed, single speed, or variable.

    To my knowledge there is no single speed pool pump @ 1725. It will not give you enough power to vacuum.
