We just had a fiberglass pool (13,000 gal) installed (2wks ago) and we have an Autopilot Digital Nano SWG and Sta-Rite Intellipro Variable speed pump. We wanted the variable speed for energy savings however the autopilot doesn't like anything less than 1500rpms. We are "pool illiterate" and I have been so thankful for this forum and have learned a lot!!
Is this normal to have to run the pump no lower than 1,500 rpms?
So far We have been running the pump at 1500 rpms for 6hrs during the day and 4 hrs at 2100 during the eve when we are usually on the pool the most. Another 2 hrs at 1500 and pump doesn't run at night. (Total run time 12 hrs during the day). Temps are in the 80s during the day 60s at night.
Appreciate any advice!!
