php handles connection pooling more or less automatically ... as long as
you use pg_pconnect() instead of pg_connect().

You have to be careful using connection pooling.  For example, if you create
a temporary table and forget to delete it when the the script completes, the
next time the script runs, it's likely that the connection will be reused
and the script will cause an error because the temp table already exists.

Here's some docs at the php web site that may help:
