Just out of curiosity, how many Intex owners use pump run schedules over just running it full time?
We actually run two pumps full time... The second pump's hoses go over the rail into the pool, the inlet weighted down with a coated bat weight near the bottom, returning over the edge about 10 feet before the skimmer pump location.
In all honesty, this setup does the job and I like that one of the pumps is taking from the bottom rather than just the surface. We don't mind the hokey setup, is better than crummy water with just one pump for sure. After starting BBB last year and being back in glinty sparkly business this year in less than 3 days I'm kinda addicted to the sparkle. Turning the pumps off for any amount of time scares me!
For what reason other than energy conservation do Intex peeps turn pumps off for?
