Looks like I'm finally gonna get to build my pool I've really been trying to do my homework. Thanks y'all.
It's going to be a 16x38 fiberglass. 24-26K G, depending on which one I go with. Also a SWG.
Will a Tristar 2sp, 1HP full rated, 1.85 BHP pump work with a 325 sq.ft. cart filter?? I've been reading Hydralics 101. Not sure I've got it figured out though.
The Hayward graft shows the pump @ 20' total head, on low speed, to be 80GPM. Doesn't show what it is on high speed and that doesn't seem like a reasonable total head figure either. According to what I've read the average total head is 45-65'. Is total head directly proportional to GPM???
The design flow for the filter is 122GPM with an 8hr turnover of 58,560G. Not sure what design flow means.
The only thing extra that I would have is maybe 2 or 4 deck jets. 2" plumbing, 1 skimmer, 1 main drain, 2 returns.
I'm soooo confused
