    Keeping the pool heated with Easy Touch?

    I'm asking this question because I think I've been doing it wrong since upgrading to an Easy Touch 8 controlling an Intelliflo pump last year. I run the pump overnight from 10pm to 4am and boost the speed for a few hours so the suction vacuum can do its thing in my approx 12K gallon pool. But whenever we want to keep the pool heated for a weekend (or longer), I find that I have to basically change the primary pool program to run from 10pm to 10pm because if I just hit the P button to turn on the pool, 12 hours later the egg timer shuts off the heating.

    Am I missing something? I thought hitting P was supposed to keep the pool on. It's a pain to keep altering the program for the pool every time I want to run it for more than few hours. Seems overly complicated. Right now I have to use the controller to turn on the heater, then change the program. The wife's eyes glaze over. Should be able to just hit a button and away we go.

    What's the right way to do this? Thanks for your help.

    Push the menu button, scroll to schedules, hit select. Scroll to pool schedule, hit select. scroll to egg timer, hit select. scroll through time to "don't stop", hit select.
    Note: pump may still shut off at 4am.

    Thanks for the response, but that won't solve the problem, will it? If the pump stops then heating stops. Unless the demand for heat keeps the pump going?
