    Wanda the Whale Run Time

    How long does everyone run their pool cleaners? Thanks to the website my pool is crystal clear with only 3 leaves in the bottom, so looking at the bottom to know when it's all been covered by the cleaner isn't going to work. I've been throwing it in my 24' pool for 2 hours and taking it out as part of my weekly cleaning. Just curious if anyone knows how long the pattern actually takes since the Hayward website says "in minimal time".

    Mr. Bug cleans my pool. My pool is 16X32 and it takes him (yes it's a boy) a few hours to get it all done. I like to set him loose on Saturday mornings. While I clean the house, he cleans the pool. I don't really time him I other than when I'm done cleaning the house I figure he's done with the pool.

    My Intex 12'x24'x52" pool literally sits completely under a giant tree so I run my pump 6 hrs a day and I toss my pool rover in for about 2 hours almost daily. Overkill yes but I hate vacuuming the pool!
