Proper pump speed for VS pump?
I've been getting conflicting opinions about what rpm's I should be running my new pentair VS-3050 pump.
I've got a 12K gallon pool, 2-inch pipes and the skimmer is about 35 feet from the equipment. It's a pretty standard pool with no spa and is basically a rectangle with a 6foot deep end. The filter is a pentair 420 cartridge (150 GPM). We are using a vacuum cleaner and it is using one of those skimmer\main drain setups where most of the suction is thru the skimmer and nothing really goes thru the main drains.
Can someone recommend a ballpark rpm setup for this configuration? I've got one guy telling me about 2300 rpm and one guy telling me that 1000 rpm is fine. I'm sure it's more scientific than this....
