    How long to completely filter 15K

    How long will it take to completely filter 15K using a 2HP, dual speed, on low? Hayward said only 3.5 hours, is this possible?

    Welcome

    Are you trying to figure out turnover time from gallons per hour to establish pump run time?

    Don't worry about it. We have an article in Pool School that explains pump run time. Most of us get by on 3 or 4 hours a day.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    I just heard back from Hayward. They said on low speed it would take 8-9 hours to completely turnover. I just wanted to know if I was running it long enough. Thank you!
