Can I set the variable speed pump to 1000 rpm and have it run 24/7 (or maybe 20 hours, 7 days a week) even though the skimmer doesn't seem to work at that speed?
I currently have it running at 1700 RPM for 8 hours (1a-9a). The solar blanket is on when we aren't swimming so I'm not sure if this skimming action is even worth it. Will I run into problems with the motor if I never turn it off? The filter still does its job at 1000 RPM and the water is still circulated, right?
Basically any downside to not caring if the top skimmer doesn't "work" at certain rpm? Everything I read states lower the rpm to the point where the skimmer still works and then trial and error on duration of running pump. I want to know if I can just ignore the first part and just see how long I have to run the pump at 1000 rpm.
