New to this forum and trying to figure stuff out for myself. I had new pool equipment installed a year ago and the settings that the installer used are costing me a fortune in electricity bills and i want to know what settings i should be using to run the equipment for the right amount of time at the right speed.
here is what i know my setup is
Hayward ecostar pool pump
hayward ecommand 4 control box
Approx 25,000 gallon pool
Right now its set to run for 8 hours a day in winter at full speed which looks to be about 3105 RPM which based on the website basically says that is 90% or about 144 GPM (equipment is about 30ft from pool)
Reading the manuals it seems to imply that the pool should run a mixture of high and low speed. I've contacted the installer who basically told me that i should just reduce the pump speed, but he didn't give me a real high level of comfort that it was right. So any help would be very much appreciated. I've attached some pics of the set up.
