    How long to run the pump/filter ???

    New to this pool thing and trying to figure out what are the considerations for how long to run the pump and filter?
    Got a good start on the BBB system and have just been running the pump a few hours a day so far. No swimmers yet.
    What determines the pump time?
    Thanks!
