Ok so I was just at the local pool store here in Riverside County CA to have my salt level checked for my new pool. I was asking the guy at the store who claims to be a builder with lots of experience about how long I should run my intelliflow for. He asked what I had it set at and I said 1000 rpm and plan to run it for about 14 hours a day with another two hours at 2500 for the pool cleaner. he said there is no way I should be running it that low. He runs his at 1750 to 1800 for twelve hours a day. He claims that you can't move the water around enough at that low of speed. I thought the whole idea was to run it longer at low speed to keep the turn over rate at one to one and a half turns a day correct?
Does running at low speed cause some dead spots of water that won't circulate or something? Everything I have read here says 1000 rpm ish for longer amounts of time. is this guy wrong or just old school? Any professionals want to chime in?
