I am a new pool owner (first swim 2 days ago). I have a Jandy Stealth ePump (1.5 hp) and my pool is 13,000 gallons. The pool builder has been running my pump on full speed, 23 hours per day, as part of their start up plan.
When this start up period is over, I would like to set my pump with a program that give me good energy efficiency. My pool builder says I need to run the pump on maximum speed 8 hours per day, but if that is the case, why have a variable speed pump?
I would appreciate your recommendations and any explanation of which speeds are cost effective.
