1. ## Cell life question

What has a bigger impact on the life of a cell, run time or what percent the cell is run at? IE: is it better to run 3 hours a day at 60% or 6 hours a day at 30%? These are just numbers pulled out of thin air, but hopefully will explain the question better.

2. ## Re: Cell life question

Cell life is measured in hours energized. It doesn't matter if that is 1 hour at 100% or 10 hours at 10%, both result in one hour energized and use the same amount of cell lifetime. Your example is the same, both combinations result in 1.8 hours energized, so use up the same portion of the cell lifetime.

3. ## Re: Cell life question

Ok, that's confusing. What is the formula for calculating hour energized?

4. ## Re: Cell life question

Time energized = <hours pump is running> * <percentage> / 100

5. ## Re: Cell life question

for your cell life they both equal the same amount of wear
3x60=180 6x30=180
but running the pump longer will filter pool better at the cost of more pump run time/electricity
