    How long to run pool pump? 13,000 gallons, hayward superpump 3/4 hp 3,450 rpm

    Just curious. 13,000 gallons, hayward superpump 3/4 hp 3,450 rpm...

    My pool place says 8-10 hours. I think that's kinda long. I'm in PA, don't get much debris, etc. I just want to know aprox how long it should run for and if it's better run run it earlier in the day or later...

    The pool place isn't paying your electric bill. Have you read the article in Pool School?
    16K freeform gunite with spa; Pentair 4000 DE filter; Century Whisperflow 1 HP; Pentair Minimax heater.
    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
