    Pump Run Time

    I am at a lost to figure how long to run my pump on a new pool..
    My gals are 13180..
    None to little surface debris
    None to little bottom debris
    I have almost no vegetation that can get into pool except some flying debris occasional..

    I have a Jandy VS 2000 pump.. I am running it at like 1800 RPMs for 6 hrs and 3150 for 4 hrs..
    Is this way to much.... I'm not smart enough to figure the jandy turnover charts..

    Pool has been perfectly balanced and sparkling clean..
    I also have only one skimmer and a cartridge filter..

    Any advice is appreciated..
