    Chart for recommended pump and filter sizes by pool size?

    I was wondering if there is a list complied on this forum somewhere of the pump and filter sizes you experts would recommend based on pool size?

    I know I have seen mentioned in individual threads that you should have a minimum size pump for X size of pool. Or "I wouldn't go any smaller then X for this size pool".

    But is this info all complied in one area? I can't find it if there is. We are considering buying a used AGP and want to make sure the pump and filter are adequately sized for the pool or if this is something we need to consider in our budget of upgrading the equipment.

    Am I making any sense? I feel like I am rambling. I guess I am looking for a quick glance area that says if you are going to purchase a 20' AGP then this is the minimum you would want for pump and filter. Or if you are going to purchase a 24' AGP then this is the minimum you would want for the pump and filter.

    OK, done rambling

    I don't know of a list, but you should note there are other factors in pump sizing like if you have water feature or solar hest

    Sounds like a good idea to me! But also, all same hp pumps are NOT created equal either.

    There is a filter chart in a Pumping Station sticky, "Have you lost your head" We generally recommend double the table for cartridge and DE filters and the as listed size for sand.

    Pump sizing is more based on water flow requirements than the pool size.
