    Best SWCG to use with 6hr pump run time

    Ok so I'm on the verge of buying a swcg but I want to make sure the one I get will work with about a 6hr pump run time. I've been looking at the Aquatrol and the pool pilot nano, I was told the output they list is for 24 hr run time so I don't know if they will be sufficient for the 6hr run time. My pool always has a solar cover on it when it's not used and I'm not in a real warm area so it's not used every day. Help !! I don't want to spend that kind of money on the wrong one !!

    In Buffalo you should be fine with the Nano, but the AquaTrol will probably be marginal on the hottest days of the summer.
