My pool was completed and filled with water just over 3 weeks ago. There was an acid startup and then chemicals were added. The PB told us they do not recommend that we run the pool less than 1hour per 10 degrees outside (would put us at 9-10 hours) but set the schedule from 8am to 8pm. We have a chlorine pool with intelliflow var speed pump for primary pool and a regular pump for spa.
A few questions :
- based on the how to section, it would appear I can begin testing a reduction in run time. How does one determine if they've reduced run time too far?
- spa was never put on a schedule which means just a blower for the spillway runs ... We don't use the spa ... Is this an issue? Should we add a schedule to it?
- is there any advantage to split schedules versus straight run time ... Our PB said to keep it on a straight schedule and run during the hottest time of day.
