Hello all, I have a 4x160 pump and wanted to know if this was a good way to go about finding flow rate.
I used my pump to draw water from the pool and used the drain valve with hose to fill up a 5 gallon bucket. I checked to see how long it would take on the first 3 speeds. The thing i was wondering about was how can I compare a 2" flexible vinyl hose running say 20' versus my 2" sch 40 inground run going back to the pool (returns). Or is this method accurate enough to give me a way of determining runtime to cycle my water at least 1 turn daily.
Thanks for any input!
