    Intelliflo Variable Speed ideal 24 hour settings?

    Hello. I'm new to all of this. I am just wondering if anyone has any suggestions on settings. Currently I have the pump running at 1400 rpm for 20 hours a day and then 2 - 2 hour intervals where it bumps up to 2800 rpm.

    I've got a 20x46 IG. Has a 6 foot tanning ledge, then goes down to 3.5 feet down to 12 feet.
    30,200 gallon. IG - 20 by 46". Vinyl liner. Sand filter.

    Highest efficiency is around 1000 rpm ... so might try to lower it to that to squeak out a little more savings.

    But in reality, you likely do not need to be running it nearly that much. I would cut down to 10 hours on low and then maybe two one hour periods on high speed and see if the pool stays as clean looking. Even that is likely more than you need.

    Gotcha, I just feel like when it's on 1400rpm I don't really see much movement. But, maybe it is doing more then I can see! Again it's all new to me
