    New pentair vs pump setup

    I have a new IG plaster pool that was filled 4 weeks ago. I was going to try a program of 1500 rmp from 8-noon than 2350 from noon to 3 then back to 1500 rpm from 3 to 8 then off from 8pm to 8am. How do I know if that is enough, Or too much? I also just got my tf 100 test kit, what should I test? My pool will be filled for 4 weeks on monday.

    I do not have any flow meters, and really can't install any right now(don't want to mess with my warranty). At 1500 rpm my pressure gauge reads 0 and at 2350 it reads 10psi. I can feel flow out from my returns at a minimum of 12 at 1500 psi (speed preset 2). I have a chlornitor set at 5 1/2 with 5, 3 in tabs in it (I know, I know)
