    Pump speed with SWG


    We have our pool filled and I'm working on balancing the water, salt is in stablizer in and I am wondering at what speed to run the pump, for now I have it going 24/7 on

    the speed #2, is this good with my SWG or do I need more GPM? I think I have read that you may need more flow?

    Pump is a Sta-rite Intellipro 4X160 1 drain line 1 skimmer with 70 ft lines to pump house 2 return lines both T into the steps to make 4 return jets.

    pump is self priming as it is slightly below the water level in the pool, the flow

    seems good, I am very impressed with this pump it is quiet!! and will really move the water at higher speeds.

    all lines are 1.5"....undersized ?

    Speeds and pressure # 1- 3 psi # 2-6 psi #3 12 psi #4 20 psi

    Thanks Silcozot

    Re: Pump speed with SWG

    run it as slow as you can
    your SWG manual should have a minimum flow recommendation
