    Flow rate

    I just installed a Pentair Intelliflo pump. I am confused about determining the flow rate at a certain RPM
    The Pentair Pump Performance Chart seems to say that at 2,350 RPM (one of the pre-sets) it does about 90 gpm which in my 26K pool would mean about 5 hrs run time to get 1 turnover
    I was looking on the forum and there were posts that had GPM at that speed significantly less at that speed.

    Any help determining what the actual gpm at variuos rpms would be appreciated

    Re: Flow rate

    There is no real need to know the flow rate. Just set it to be adequate for what you need done like skimming, etc.

    See the article in Pool School about determining pump run time.
