    How long to run in floor pool cleaner (pcc 2000)

    This is my first experience with an in floor cleaner.
    I have been running the pcc 2000 for 1/2 hour prior to running the main drain/filter. The cleaner cycles through each zone approx 10 times within the 1/2 hour. I have no problems (yet) with large amounts of debris, leaves etc that the cleaner must move around, other than the dirt that normally accumulates.
    Are there any rules of thumb about in floor cleaner run times? Or, trial and error until you find the pool is clean sufficiently.

    Thanks for any input.
    16K gallon, Pebble tec, beach entry. Two 1 hp Pentair Whisperflos. One for Paramount MDX2 main drain, Paramount debris canister, and Pentair CCP 520 filter. One for skimmer w/sock and Paramount PCC2000 in floor cleaner. 3/4 hp Pentair Pinnacle for waterfall. Fiberstars fiber optic pool lighting. Aqua-Logic AQL-P-4 control panel with wired remote in the house. SWCG system that is not used. Ultra-Pure Ozonator that is not used.

    There is no set rule as far as run times go for in-floor cleaning systems. It's all a matter of what works for you. I personally run my in-floor system exclusively during the summer months. It provides excellent circulation and keeps vacuuming to a minimum.
    My pool is a 10,500 gallon (420 Sq Ft ) kidney shape. STA-RITE HRPB30, Sand filter 30" 98 GPM, 1 HP Maxi-Glas 2 pump, BBB Method, Taylor K-2005 test kit, 50 Watt 12V low-voltage pond light illuminates the pool at night for a nice soft glow.
