Sorry for another Intelliflo question - but with the new pump running at the “high” setting that the installer set (2600 rpm), I was shocked to see my pool cleaner (Hayward Pool Vac Ultra) working its way all the way up the sides of my pool (for the first time ever) and even breaking the surface of the water. With the old 1.5 hp single speed, it never made it more than about a foot up the side and then turned around. I reduced the rpm to 2400 to see what would happen (also because I thought it might leap right out of the water like a dolphin at that speed!) and it still seems to be working great at 2400, but should I experiment by reducing the rpms further? Other than having it clean all the way up the sides of the pool is there anything else I should consider before I keep trying to lower the rpm further?
Also, they set it up to run at 2600 for 2 hours, and then at 1250 for 6 hours. I was thinking about trying 1100 or even 1000 for the low setting, but should I then increase the time? Maybe 7 hours?
I saw someone mentioned running high for half the time, then low, then high for the other half. So I’m thinking maybe 1 hour at high - then 7 hours at the low setting, then 1 hour again at high. Any thoughts or other things i should consider?
Just fyi - For the past 13 years I ran a single speed 1.5 hp Pentair pump at 4 hours a day and it worked well (I could reduce that time in winter, and the cleaner didn’t go up the sides, however.)
