    Welcome to TFP!

    The answer is no. But you are wasting a lot of money on electricity by running that much.

    I agree with jblizzle, 24/7 is a waste of money for normal circumstances. If you are SLAMming, then it's a different ballgame. When we are not in the pool, I run mine about 5 hours a night after I pour some chlorine. When we are in the pool the pump is running all the time and when we are done swimming I pour some chlorine and let it run for another 3 hours.
