We are in the process of stumbling into getting our pool set up and approaching the point where it might make sense to sit down and make a plan. But I'm not 100% sure of what I'm planning here?
Initially someone told me to run the filter 8 hrs/day at low speed... so I do that. But then when the solar was installed we also enabled solar to run any time there is sun and as long as the pool is not too warm, so we did that - so it is running half the day or more at high speed (only dropping to low speed again if it gets cloudy).
As soon as I get a few things straight I'll be adding salt and starting the chlorinator. Does that need a minimum number of hours/flow per day to work properly? And yesterday our neighbor stopped by and said that they adjust filter run time based on average temperature outside and will soon be increasing it. Oh yes... and I also need to put the robot on a timer and let it run, and it seems to want a lower flow rate so I'm thinking that needs to be at night when the solar can't kick in? How long and how often for the robot?
I think I'm looking for more rules than I have thumbs?
