Hi folks, I just picked up a backup pump for my pool... its a pentair vs+svrs and its working fine other than two things...
1. can someone tell me the minimum RPM setting for my filter?
2. seems like the drain plug on the pump (one under the lid) doesn't go all the way in... (threads look fine) going to try Teflon tape.
Anyway, the manual settings are OK, I select #3 for operation, seems like it puts my filter gauge about where it was before (12/13), with the 3/4 pump. But I was wondering what the recomended speed would be for someone who runs the pump 24/7... I guess I need to have it set so it matches the filter?
As you can tell I'm lost, but trying to figure it out now...
here are a few pics:
MAXIMUM RECOMMENDED SYSTEM FLOW RATE BY PIPE SIZE
Flow rate GMP
I have the pump set to 2350 RPM right now which gives me about 13 psi at the filter I think...
Looks like it may be set to 55 GPM based off the spreadsheet I found on this site:
2350 rpm at 810 watts = 55 GPM... close enough for me... but I do see the filter says max recommended GPM is 45 with 1.5 pvc... I may need to tweak it a bit - Unsure if that matters.
Any help would be cool...
