    VSP Settings

    Right now the pump is setup full speed 3450 rpms from 12 pm to 4 pm and 1750 rpms the rest of the day/night. I am assuming it will be like this for the first month after opening. What will be good setting/schedule for the pump on the pool?

    No, not necessarily,

    Everything with startup is done? If so, you can go to a more normal run time setup. Check out the article in Pool School on that.

    For the first few weeks after fresh plaster is applied it is good to run the pump 24/7. Full speed is not normally required, something in the 1750 to 2200 range is more normal. After the first two to four weeks you can switch to a more normal schedule as Patrick_B suggested.

    Thank you Patrick and Jason. I will leave it as it is for a couple of weeks until I become more familiar with chemistry and testing. Then I will start adjusting the run time.

    Good deal,

    Most pools can run well below the standard suggestions of 12+ hours per day. A lot of PBs suggest this, but most of us run much shorter times. How much debris you have getting in the pool plays a large role in this.
