What should be the balance between pool filtering (going the filter, ozinator, clorinator) vs what a robot cleaner (such as the Dolphin Premier with a 2 micron filter)? Or do you even take into account the cleaning robot's cleaning ability?
If I run my pool pump @1200 gph, I'd run it for 10 hours to turn over the water once. The Premier cleans @4500 gph, so in it's 2.5 hr cycle, it'll almost (11250) filter the same amount of water. My Intelliflo will use 1500w vs 540 for the Premier for the same 12K gal of filtered water.
Power-wise, it would seem better to split these two uses to get a 2x turnover of my pool. However, I don't know how to judge the cleaning tradeoffs.
