    Intex fountain and pump running while in the pool

    Why does intex make a fountain if you are not supposed to be in the pool when the pump is running?

    That is probably just due to US liability nonsense suits. My pump runs 24/7.

    fountains also serve the purpose of cooling the water and providing aeration to raise pH, so perhaps one might be doing that without being in the pool.

    I just like the look and sound of a fountain whether I'm in the pool or not.

    That's just legal CYA, as opposed to the CYA we normally discuss here.
