Been reading your post, good stuff! Had a couple of quick questions if I may? I'm inclined to run my pump 24/7. It's a Jandy 1.5 HP motor which is not at all noisy, so there's no down side there.
Seems to me the reason people do not run thier filter 24/7 are as follows:
Noise: (as I said this does not bother me at all)
Cost: (my data is confounded due to air conditioners -not sure what running the pump 24/7 would cost over not at all -any input?)
Wear/ Tear: I can see how motor life is finite and all, but I'm thinking that increasing the on/off cycles will have an impact on logevity as well. Is one better tha another on the motor?
I'd be curious what some of you folks do in this area and why if you would not mind.
