Hi - I can't seem to find the flow rate for my pump + filter system. I bought the Seascape 27 ft AGP from the Great Escape and it came with Hayward equipment
- pump model is Swimpro SW15851X20TL, motor part number 7-193554-01
- Swimpro Voyager cartridge filter model SW150
The filter says max flow rate 100 GPM but I didnt think that was the true flow rate.
Let me know if I need to provide more info.
Thanks in advance for any advice anyone can provide!

- Pablo

Just curious why you think you need to know the flow rate? There is generally no need and it is not trivial to determine based on head loss.

Hi, i was under the impression that to calculate the optimal (minimum) time to run the pump to ensure turnover , the flow rate as well as the water volume is needed.

If there's a better or more accurate way to determine the optimal pump run time that doesn't require flow rate, let me know; thanks!

Turnover is meaningless and there is no optional run time.

The minimum run time you need is about 2 hours to distribute the chemistry. But often other factors increase that run time, like heating, swg generation, running pool cleaner, adequate skimming, etc.
