A Swimming pool pump is probably the most important single piece of equipment in the circulation system. Selecting a pool pump is determined by a long list of factors. It is best to understand this information even if you are replacing an existent pump with the same size. If you are tempted to increase the HP of the pump, you must read and understand this.

Total dynamic head (TDH) is the sum of the resistance experienced by water flowing through the pipes and filter system. Each elbow, foot of pipe, fittings and anything else that is in the circulation system increases the Total Dynamic Head. The TDH will affect the flow rate. For a new pool this is somewhat more easy to calculate, but for an existing pool, with piping below the ground it is much more difficult.
