I recently read a post that gave a great reason (for those whose electric rates are the same all day and night) to break up the times you run your pump into two sections. It makes sense that there would be less time the pool is uncirculated if I run the pump from 6-11 am and again at 6-11 pm instead of just 10-8. Still 10 hours of run time, just less time the pool is sitting still.
So, my only question is does it matter when you are planning to swim? Do you need the pump running just before go swimming to mix everything up good? Or is it ok to just jump in at 4 in the afternoon even though the pump hasn't run in 5 hours? Thanks!
