What time of day do you do your filtration and robot operation? How long is your filter cycle? Your robot cycle? Just curious to hear what others do.
I am new to in ground pools and we have the filter coming on late morning so the skimmers have had time to clean up the surface some and leave it on till early evening. Even with the boost pump off there is a little water flow to the robot to move it slowly around which can be in your way. I do like the idea of the filter running when you are in as you stir up the water.
If you have not thought of this during this winter I set my pump cycle to come on during the late night, early morning when (at least here in Texas) the low temp sensor turns on the pump anyway. This way you save on electricity.
