Hi guys, being new to pools and to this forum - this is what I learn so far in terms of having an efficient setup (keeping power bills down):
PUMP- bigger isn't better. Get the right size pump, or slower running pump - running longer is better.
PIPES - Bigger diameter is generally better.
CHLORINATOR - Getting bigger than what you need is better, you can run chlorinator shorter times - less wear on cell - cell will last longer.
Is a sand filer bigger than what you need better? ie will a bigger pump cause less friction and be more efficient?
The answer is the missing link to my basic knowledge of pool equipment and efficiency
