    PUMP TIME OR SWG % TIME

    I have a Auto pilot dig -220 and i was curious if it is smarter to run the pump a shorter time
    or turn up the % on the SWG a little higher,I can not open the pool so far ,do to the weather
    I run the pump for 8 hours per day and it has worked out well so far,maybe I need that time for
    the water turnaround , just wondering if I can lower the pump time if it is to much

    Set the pump run time based on your filtration needs and then adjust the % based on your chlorine needs.

    I very much doubt that you need even four hours of pump run time at this time of year.
