You would get the gallons per hour rating from the specifications of the device. Are you running it with a separate air pump? What are the specifications of the pump? Is this sponge filter the only thing being run by the pump?

The pump moves 2.6 Liters of air Per Minute but I don't know how or if that translates into gallons per hour of water when evaluating a sponge filter.

For a canister or power filter, a certain number of gallons per hour is passed through the filter media and comes out the other side.
