    New Filter, Pool, and Pump

    We recently had a 18' pool installed and without any major issues with water clearity. I have been running my filter and pump pretty much all day and night with a few hours break. I turn it off when we are in it also.

    Is there a good rule of thumb on how long the filter and pump should run? I have a timer I could use, but not to sure about it..

    Welcome to TFP.

    There's a good article in Pool School about pump run times.
