My PB gave me very little guidance on how to program the Intelliflo through the Easy Touch. I have figured a good bit of it out and looked through this board to give me some great guidance. A couple questions that still linger.
1) I am controlling the different speeds of the pump through different Features. These different features are scheduled to run at different times. One thing I don't know for certain that I have seen elsewhere is do I have to schedule the Pool circuit to run 24/7 to allow these features to work (my understanding is that the Pool circuit is what actually turns the pump on - Features only control the speeds.) Or even if I don't do 24/7 on the pool circuit, i need to at least schedule the Pool circuit to come on 5 minutes before and after my Feature time to ensure the pump comes on or off.
2) Assuming I get #1 to work correctly and can change speeds when I want to, what do people recommend on the speed settings and duration during a 24 hour period? I was thinking about 12 hours on 2500 rpm and 12 hours on 1000 rpm. Do I really need to run all 24 hours? Should I run faster during the day or at night? I do have an Intellichlor which I know alters the run times but it won't be running for a few more weeks as it's new plaster and can't add the salt yet. Just trying to learn the basics on when to run and how fast to run the pump.
