    Filter run time

    My current filter system turns the pool over about every 3.5-4hrs. Should I only run my pump that long each day? for the last month the pump has only been shut off long enough to change the cartridge.

    Basically, running the system 24/7, does that do any better than 4hrs? or am I just wasting electricity?
