Putting in a new pool and getting myself educated on the finer aspects of maintenance, chemistry, etc!
I read somewhere that there is a formula to calculate the number of hours to run a pump to ensure 2 full circulations, but it took the Total Dynamic Head of the setup into consideration.
Now, I think I have to buy two gauges - One pressure and one vacuum.
I was wondering if someone can help me figure out how to measure the TDH on a Hayward Costar pump (EcoStar | Pumps | In Ground Pool Pumps - Hayward Pool Products) and where should I have these gauges put in.
We are just finishing plumbing and I want to see if I can add these gauges permanently to the setup.
After reading, I am thinking of putting in a FlowVis FlowMeter, rather than mess around with Gauges...
Question: Can I install a FlowVis Flow Meter AFTER the pump as shown below? Will that give me an accurate measure of the total 'flow' to help me calculate pool pump run duration?
