Searching out some recommendations for correct settings on my new Intelliflo VS just installed. My 'pool pro' who installed it isn't familiar and just set it at speed 3. Details of pool:
37,500 gallons
in-ground
concrete with liner
Intellichlor Salt
Heater
Cartridge filter with max flow rate of 100 gpm and max psi of 50
2" piping
Head average distance is 55-60 feet

New to this variable speed pump but looking to take advantage of it's perks, like what speed to run on average or at night or when vacuuming, etc. Manual doesn't really have a guide. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,
Scott

Typically you may want to run a low speed for at least 1200-1500 rpm, this will be determined by how long it is recommended to run your pump throughout the day, you will need to run a higher speed of at least 2500+ for a short period of time, about 3 hours to skim the pool, because each pool will need to dialed in specifically you will want to speak to a service technician that will be able to determine what you pump and schedule should be running at. This is only a scenario, not official for you pool filtration needs.
