    How to best program pump?

    We just installed an IntelliFlo pump. We have approximately 28,000 gallon pool. I'm trying to determine how to program the pump to best suit our pool. What RPM should it run at and for how long, etc?

    Welcome to TFP!!!

    Take a look at this article in Pool School: http://www.troublefreepool.com/conte...-pump-run-time

    1000 rpm is the most efficient, but may be too slow if you have certain flow rate needs.

    Please add your pool details to your signature and as described HERE as it will help us help you in the future.

    Welcome to TFP! If you spend the time reading through the articles on this site ( and for me re-reading several times) you will find a wealth of information that help with many of your questions. Being a first time pool owner, it helped me to start out on the right foot with my pool.

    I had to experiment a little. 1000 rpm was a little slow for the SWG so I kept bumping up to make sure the SWG was happy. If you have automation with your pump, it can help,with various tasks or a water feature. I have several settings for things such as my pressure side cleaner, waterfall, quick skim, etc. The same goes with run time. Just had to experiment a little. Based on what I have learned on this site, it's not a one answer fits all.
