    pump run time

    Hi,

    I have been running my pump on low 24/7 for at least the last month....is that okay to do? I'm not sure how to figure out how long it takes for one turnover...so I've just opted to keep it running constantly. The water looks great now, I don't want that to change!!!

    Thanks

    Running the pump all the time is just fine, as long as the cost of electricity doesn't bother your. I doubt your pool needs that much run time, even on low speed, but it doesn't hurt anything.
