Enter the total number of gallons in the pool and the pool flow rate (gallons/min) into the Pool Turnover Rate Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Pool Turnover Rate.

## Pool Turnover Rate Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Pool Turnover Rate.

PTR = G / FR/60

- Where PTR is the Pool Turnover Rate (hours)
- #G is the total number of gallons in the pool
- FR is the pool flow rate (gallons/min)

To calculate the pool turnover rate, divide the gallons of water in the pool by the pool flow rate.

## How to Calculate Pool Turnover Rate?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Pool Turnover Rate.

Example Problem #1:

- First, determine the total number of gallons in the pool.
- The total number of gallons in the pool is given as: 20,000.

- Next, determine the pool flow rate (gallons/min).
- The pool flow rate (gallons/min) is provided as: 300.

- Finally, calculate the Pool Turnover Rate using the equation above:

PTR = #G / (FR/60)

The values provided above are inserted into the equation below and computed.

PTR = 20,000 / 300/60 = 1.11 (hours)

Example Problem #2:** **

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

total number of gallons in the pool = 30,000

pool flow rate (gallons/min) = 100

Test your knowledge using the equation and check your answer with the calculator..

PTR = #G / FR/60 = ?
