I have been reading on this site and my manuel to my pump but I still confused.
My specs are listed below.
First I'm trying to find out what my turn over rate is. I see on my manual that Total Head is about 65 and my GPM is at 90. I'm not sure how to do the math on this. Also, does my filter affect the turnover rate?
Once I figure my turn over rate, I can then determine how long I need to run to ensure 1 complete turn over for my 12,000 gallon pool.
Then my last questions is, do you have to run your pump during the day? I prefer to run it at night when the air temp is cooler so my cool misting spray can lower the water temp. I live in Texas with little shade around the pool, only AM hours from the house.
Right now, I have been running 5 hrs at night 12-5 and then an additional 4 hours in the day hours using 30 minute increments.
My FC test has been holding at 11-13 consistently but would like to drop that down to 3-5 and I figured if I reduce my pump run time that would do it. The water is very clear. However, I don't know if I have to run the pump during the day.
Thanks for the help.
