    How quickly with this pump/filter cycle water

    I am using the pump/filter that I got with this AG pool ... I am trying to figure out how much run time I am going to have. Should I consider an upgrade next year?

    Here is the information on the filter and the pump ... I guess I need to figure out how quickly the water will cycle with this set up ... how often I need to run the pump ... and if it is sufficient ...

    (and what of this information I need to put in my signature!)

    Filter - Hayward sand filter
    1.4 sq ft filtration area
    25 GPM dssign flow rate
    35 GPM filter and backwash rate
    50 PSI max work pressure

    Pump -
    3/4 HP
    3450 RPM
    SwimNPlay AG 15x33 oval 48" high 12k gallons - Used pool set up July 2013
    Hayward sand filter, Sta-Rite 3/4 HP pump

    Flow rate does not matter. Run it as long needed to keep the pool looking clean. See the article in the How To section of Pool School.

    Right now I run mine in two 3 hour shifts. One during the day and one at night.
