As per my sig below, I have an easytouch controller, a variable speed pump and a natural gas heater. I presently have set everything such that my pump only runs a 18 hours a day to save energy of course. I turn my heater on and off manually and when turning it on, i set my pump to run 24 hrs per day.
I want to know if I can change my heater setting such that it is always on while at the same time, I would still run my pump only 18 hours per day? I believe I could do this as I know that my NG heater has a flow sensor of some sort such that it will operate only when my pump is operating. However, I want to know if this is the proper/preferable method of setting my easy touch (i.e. can i possibly damage my heater etc?) or alternatively, should i really be running my pump 24/7 when my heater is on?
