I am new to this and just had my pool completed a few weeks back. I have a 30K gal IG with a sand filter, Intelliclor SWG and an Intelliflow variable speed pump. I really have no idea how long I should be running it and how I should be setting the SWG. The PB left it running at about 2400 rpm 24hr a day. I have adjusted it down to run about 12 hours/day at 1800 rpm. So my questions are:
- Is there an easy way to convert RPM to GPM?
- How many turn-overs should I shoot for per day?
- Is there an "optimal" pump speed?
- Do I essentially pick a pump schedule that keeps the pool clean and then adjust SWG ouput to maintain sufficient chlorine levels?
Seems clear that I may need to tweak as outdoor temps go up and down, but trying to figure out how I can establish a baseline. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated!
