Calculating GPH for BTU's?

How do you properly calculate what GPH pump size you need for the BTU size of your self contained unit?

I have a 16,500btu unit that had its compressor changed and is now a 12,000btu unit. Would a 250gph pump suffice?

Re: Calculating GPH for BTU's?

Disregard... I see that the rule of thumb is 180gph per 12,000 btu's.
