tube, with friction losses neglected. Using a 3/4" garden hose 50 foot long reduces this performance to approximately 500 gallons per hour due to friction losses in the hose. If your area frequently has heavy rainfalls, (1" - 2" per hour), it may be necessary to use 1" tubing. This should be available in most pool supply stores.
The number of gallons of water that your pool will collect in a rainfall of one inch per hour can be computed as follows: Cover overall length (ft.) x cover overall width (ft.) x .6234 = gallons per hour.
NOTE: This is cover dimension, and not pool dimension.
* A 16' x 32' pool cover would collect 319 gallons (16 x 32 x .6234 = 319) in 1 hour, in 1" per hour rain.
* A 20' x 40' pool cover would collect 499 gallons (20 x 40 x .6234 = 499) in 1 hour, in 1" per hour rain.
