Thinking about set up for this season and have a friend that is an electrician doing the wiring etc of the SWG and I was wondering if I should bite the bullet and buy one of these intermittent pumps. There is nothing wrong with the workhorse I have now that is 16 years old (came with the house when we bought it) and was rebuilt 1x (not by me - prior owner).
Typically, I would set the pump to go on at like 10:00 AM and have it shut around 5:00 PM because my thinking was since the sun is on the pool, the pump needs to be circulating water. So now, since my SWG is new, should I get one of these pumps? Not sure. My timer is one of those traditional dial ones with the pins that I will probably go digital when the SWG is installed.
Appreciate the input.
