Here are a few factors to consider when buying a pool pump.
Minimum Flow Rate
The turnover is the minimum amount of time it takes the pump to circulate all your pool’s water through the filter. Ideally, all your pool water should pass through the filter at least once per day to ensure the pool is clean. For most pools, a run time of 7-8 hours is perfect.
Maximum Flow Rate
It’s important to coordinate your pool pump with your pool filter, which has a maximum flow rate. The pump’s max flow rate should be below the filter’s maximum flow rate, otherwise the pump could overwhelm the filter with excessive water pressure and cause damage. Your filter’s maximum flow rate is specified by the manufacturer.
Resistance on the Pool Pump
Every piece of equipment, including heaters and pool cleaners, connected to your pool’s circulation system adds resistance to the flow of water. The greater this resistance, the stronger the pump needs to be in order to overcome it. This resistance to flow is measured in “meters of head”. Most domestic pools have a resistance of 10 m.
