How do I calculate the pump size needed for me?
Pump Size Calculation: Gauging the correct size for your water garden pump will ensure your pond receives the proper water circulation. Unless the pump you buy is already configured with a built-in fountain head, you'll need to calculate how much a pump can handle before you choose a certain size or model. A good rule of thumb is that pumps should be able to pump out about half the pond volume every hour. So a pump that moves 500 gallons per hour would be appropriate for a 1,000 gallon pond. In order to determine the size pump you'll need, you must calculate several key measurements.

There are a number of online sites that have free calculators for pond keepers. Just google garden pond calculator. You will have to start with a pond volume calculator, once you know the approximate amount of water your pond holds, then use the other calculators to figure TDH (total dynamic head), friction loss, etc.
Hope this helps

Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.
The short answer is based on amount of fluid needed at the delivery point(s) and at what pressure that fluid needs to be at those points. If it is a pool pump the answer changes slightly since a pool is a closed loop system and you are more concerned with the turnover rate of the water in order to keep it clean. Is there a specific application you need help with? If so please add a comment to this post and I'll see what I can do to assist.
