My in-floor pool cleaner has a main drain and 90 degrees out from that has two pop ups that shoot water back towards the main drain. I also have a VS pump. I have noticed that these two pop ups pop up all the time while the pool is filtering not just when the cleaner is working (which is when the other floor pop ups open). I have also noticed that the pop up require about 2200 rpm before they activate( I don't know the flow).
If the pop ups are working does that indicate that there is enough flow to push debris to the main drain or am I going to have to keep the VS pump running higher than 2200 rpm to increase the flow?
I have been running at 3000 rpm for 10 hrs a day but was going to experiment with bringing the rpm's down to save on electricity. I had hoped to run at 1000 rpm's for 24hrs but that looks like it's not going to happen.
Thanks for you comments
