15,150 gallon in-ground pool
2" PVC piping
2HP Tri-star pump
Salt system (if it matters)
I live in Phoenix, AZ.
I was running my pump for about 10 hours a day to clean things up. Right now, the water is *perfect*. Pool is absolutely clean, chemical balance is great and water is sparkling. I recently bought four new cartridge filters, and cleaned the salt cell, etc. We're good.
So, now, I'm thinking that if I don't need to run it that much, I can save on some electricity costs. I don't know the GPM my system pushes. I do realize that if I lower the run time, I will need to increase the % for my salt system.
Anyway, I was thinking of dropping it to six hours per day and see if the water remains sparkling after a week. Think that's OK?
Also, trying to decide to run the pump for 6 hours straight, or for 3 hours on (say, 6AM-9AM), then again that day from 4PM-7PM.
