Hello. I recently joined this wonderful website and think I have finally mastered the BBB method in caring for my pool and spa after hours of reading and posting a few questions in those topics. My thoughts are now directed to my new variable speed pool pump. On the recommendation of my pool contractor who recently remodeled my swimming pool I am running the pump 18 hours a day at 1,250 rpms. I tried to read here on how to figure out the flow rate of a pump and became very confused at all the charts and graphs and technical terms like hydrolic head. I have no idea how many times my pool water is being turned over in a day. I recently saw the TFP websight sells water flow meters. What is the general recommendation regarding them? Would a water flow meter give me better feedback regarding the optimal speed settings of my pump?
Thank you for your help.
