As part of an energy upgrade, our pool pump was replaced to a variable speed pump. The installers configured it to the utility company's recommendation, but I don't have confidence that is what it should be. From what I can tell, it turns on at full speed at about 10am for two hours.
Then again at 7pm at a very low speed (after priming). Its still on 12 hours later. This seems like overkill to me. I started reading about head loss and fluid dynamics and such on this site and my head started to quickly spin. Hoping someone can help or point me in the right direction with something to read and start trying.
I love this community which helped me a ton with my last pool home. We moved recently and inherited this pool which was built in the 80s at some point. Got some work to do on it, but one step at a time.
