    Swimming season filtering process

    Since I am still a bit green to pools, what is the proper way to run my filter during the swimming season? I left my pool open this winter and have been doing great keeping the water clear and balanced. Wondering what sort of changes I will encounter when the grankids start enjoying it.
    Thinking about some sort of heat scource and would appreciate any advice. Would love to Geo-Thermal, but wow it seems expensive!

    Thanks

    Pump run time is one of those things that is very much and individual thing. With a 2-speed pump and an SWCG, long run times on low speed would probably be a good start point, but if you have a lot of surface debris you might need some high speed runs too.

    Re: Swimming season filtering process

    This is my first summer with the pool. Water balance has been great, thanks to all yous
    We have had a couple of weeks with 90s to 100s
    Pool water is not quite as clear and sparkly, is this normal for extreme heat?
    Pump runs on high for 3-1/2 hrs in the morning, 2-1/2 in the evening, runs on low speed the rest of the time
    last test results were:
    PH-7.7
    TA- 70
    CC-2-3
    CYA- Just had to raise it from 30 to 60 (Chlorine was still doing ok but I raised it anyway per TFP School
