I have read and read and read. I understand its really a function of trial and error. I am attempting trying to reduce the trial/error period and am hoping someone can suggest a good starting point for my Hayward Tristar VS run time/RPM program.
This is a new pool, PB initial startup was 7/15/16. My previous pool was a single speed main pump, pressure side cleaner & booster pump and a 3rd water feature pump. It certainly was NOT power friendly but I had that all figured out. This pool is a VS with Suction Side cleaner and a whole new learning curve for me.
16' x 32' IG Pool
Hayward Tristar SP3202VSP
Pentair 60 sq ft DE Filter
Hayward Navigator Pro Suction Cleaner
From the pool 2" line from suction cleaner and 2" line from Skimmer/Main Drain
- These are merged with a Jandy valve into a single 2" input to the pump.
To the Pool is a single 2" line out of DE filter that is reduced to (3) 1.5" return lines in the pool.
The pool builder's initial program was 5 hrs of full speed. The pool looks great, but I am not getting any advantage of the VS pump so I would like to reprogram with help from all the experience here.
Any suggestions are much appreciated.
