I've spent some tome reading the forums and just started posting my build on the pool/spa build & remodel section. At one point I've seen some formula for determining pool size in gallons. I believe it had something to do with average depth and some thing else. I've tried to find this thread again to no avail. When the time comes to fill the pool I will check the starting point of my water meter. I have a couple of easy questions for you regulars. When useing the BBB method will this have any adverse effects on my new plaster? Also, my PB upgraded my pump to a 3 hp, will this cut back on my run time? or am I limited by the volume allowed by the 2" return lines ? Is he really doing me a favor, or will I just see a higher electric bill?
I'm putting in a 97' perimiter, IG gunite, SWG, Depth ranges from 3' to 6'. No spa.
