My neighbor just bought a small IG pool he wants me to help plumb it up,
It's only 8x18 it says it's 2200 gal.
He also is going to add the Fafco solar panels I think he's getting 4 4x12's.
We are both just puzzled trying to figure a pump size, the run from the pump to pool is 25', since it's small I think 1 1/2" PVC will be fine.
And the solar will be on a roof just above the pump location, I believe he needs 4gpm for each so 16 gpm for the panels.
since the panels need to circulate thru the pool during the day I think a run time of 6 hours should work.
Now if that is figured to move the water twice a day 2200 x 2 = 4400 that is only 750 gph of water or 12 gpm.
So the pool and the solar need a pump 28 gpm with enough head to pump water to panels.
Did a figure this correctly?
If so what pump can do it?
If my calculations are wrong please give us some advice.
