    Polaris 280 questions

    Newbie here with a couple of questions..

    When I add chemicals (BL, MA) should the Polaris be out of the water?

    How many hours a day do you normally run the Polaris?

    The run time, is all at once, or periodically thruout the day?

    My PB set mine up on the Easytouch8.. it comes on by itself and goes off. (That's a whole new set of questions, but not on this thread..) lol.

    Thank you in advance!

    (It's doing a great job, as far as I can tell..)

    You shouldn't have to run it more than a couple of hours a day, maybe less. Your experience will tell you what is sufficient. Minimal run times will save energy and wear and tear.

    They are pretty well made and fairly chemical resistant. That said they will fade eventually, and excessive chemical exposure can damage the bearings.

I think the practices regularly espoused on this forum (especially the BBB method) are outstanding; however my comments will be often oriented towards the goal of getting it done, and getting it done right now!
