I have a 18 x 40 inground what sta-rite hp is needed?
E G on May 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Pump selection is made based on total head [lift (water elevation vs. pump intake) + discharge pressure (your filtering system losses [ft or psi, 1 psi = 2.31 ft])] and pool volume (the number of times per day that you want your pool water filtered [6 is a common number]). From this information, you MUST have the head curve for the pump, and knowing the pressure and volume, you can find the correct pump size and associated horsepower. Absent these three pieces of information, you can continue to buy and replace pumps, buying a larger one each time, until you find the one that gets the job done for you. ...assuming 30,000 gal / 4 hrs (=6x/day & 60 min/hr) = 30000/4/60 = 125 gallons per min at say 30 psi (2.3 feet of lift and 29 psi discharge), one would need their 3Hp model. None of us have that though, and instead, we only get 3 turnovers using their 1.5Hp model.
