Greetings from the only state without snow!
I see a lot of posts where it says the optimal run-time is whatever turns the pool over once a day. My question is: do I *have* to run the pump every day? Or just maintain FC at target + 2. For the record, the last set of numbers:
Temp: guessing 70ish
My thinking: save some electricity (50% if I run the pump every other day instead of every day). Sanitation should be fine because not being used (and there is still FC). Algae control should be fine (helped by the borates). Yes, there will be surface debris that would make the pool "dirty" rather than optimally sparkling, but I can live with that.
As long as the numbers stay well above min, I shouldn't have issues, right?
