    Pump Runtime

    Now that I finally have clear water and levels are all balanced, what should I set my timer for run time of my pump?

    Re: Pump Runtime

    Really depends on trees in the area and bugs in the area. Things like that I get very few leaves in my pool. I run mine 4 hrs total.2 hours in the morning to grab any bugs from the overnight before the kids go in the afternoon. Then 2 hours at night so I can test and add chemicals. It really depends on your needs. Start at 6 hrs and keep going down by an hour until you notice it's not as clean as you would like then add that last hour back. Just an idea with how I do it.
