    Time of day for swg

    I have an 15' by 48" intex pool with their swg. What time of day should the swg be scheduled to run to have the best effect/results?

    It is not a huge deal when you run the SWG. In theory it is most efficient if run during the day, but in practice that effect is very small. If you have time of day electric rates you can save money by running at night. There are probably a dozen other justifications for when to run it, that are all just about as valid, so pick something that works well with your schedule.
