    Hayward 1.5 HP 2 speed gallons per hour?

    cant seem to find a flow rate for the Hayward 1.5 hp 2 speed. This is the pump im having installed with my new pool this weekend. Wanting a flow rate to determine run time.

    anyone know what the flow rate usually is?

    Which model pump Hayward makes a number of 1.5 HP 2 speeds

    Ike

    p.s. we generally find optimal run time is best found through experimentation since there is no magic one size fits all gallons per hour or turns per day

    Flow rate is mostly irrelevant to run time. Read this:

    I measured mine with a 5 gallon bucket with a 3 or 4 gallon mark in it. Filled it to the line and timed it. It is very difficult to do especially on high. Take several times and average. That will get you in the ballpark somewhere of what it puts out.
