Just bought a new house with a huge 55000 gallon pool (size is listed on the original architect drawings).
i need to buy a new pool pump and im trying to select the best fit for my situation.
Plumbing size = 2in
jet outlets into pool = 3
filter: sand filter, Pentair TA-100D, 100gal/min max flow rating
flow rate for water turn over in 12hrs = 76 gal/min
flow rate for water turn over in 8hrs = 114 gal/min
Im fine with running the pump longer in order to turn over the water slower and use less power, and not exceed my sand filter capacity.
the architect design called for a 1.5hp pump, but i might be able to use a 1hp and save some money?
i just need enough suction to work some sweeping equipment, maybe some automatic pool cleaning equipment, and get the water flowing to turn over in at least 13hrs.
Im also considering going with a salt water chlorine generator and a automatic cleaning device to eliminate most of the maintenance.
thanks for any input
