Ok, still learning heaps about keeping pools, and on to the next question!
I was advised to run my filter ( sand) for 6-8hrs a day during the warmer months, and have been doing so for 6hrs between 11 and 5pm, then 2hrs at 2-4am. Does this sound about right?
Also, the return jets were initially pointing toward the surface of the pool, which would mean only really the top layer of water is bent circulated, wouldn't it? I have since pointed them deeper into the pool and a different direction, and this works better from a skimming perspective, but worse for settled debris. How do you know which s the right way to point your jets?
