I just purchased a new Pentair Intelli-Flo VS (011018) pump to replace a dying Jacuzzi Magnum Force Pump (1hp). The old pump shaft seal went bad and was replaced and it all went down hill from there. The pump was very old and after doing a complete overhaul on it about 3 months ago, I decided to replace it altogether, after spending almost $200 in parts.
I am new to this (the forum and the pool stuff), so I apologize ahead of time if I forget to include some information or if I'm in the wrong place.
I have an Intelli-Chlor IC20 chlorinator, Jacuzzi SherLok 120 cartridge filter and the pool is approximately 14,000 gallons running through 2" piping. There is a booster pump attached which used to run a pressure side cleaner which I don't currently use, but would like to. There is also a MiniMax NT heater connected, but not turned on or running.
I hooked the pump up to the same box the chlorinator is hooked up to (the intelli-chlor controller) through the provided cable/terminals. The pump is hooked up to a dial timer box which actually has two dial timers inside (one for the pump and one for the booster pump).
My questions are this. What are the best settings/times to run this pump at? I have checked everywhere and get some different results. My goal is this; to reduce the money spent running the pump and to keep the pool clean and turned as it should be.
Right now I have the pump settings at this;
I will attach a picture of the setup. Again, I am very new to this. When I purchased this house in last July it had not been lived-in for over a year. I am very happy with the pool, the equipment and the new pump. I just want to try and maximize my use of everything, with what little knowledge I have.
Thanks again for whatever help anyone can provide.
