As a newbie, I'm assuming that a running pump is what is driving the water through the skimmer/filter? I do not have a timer on my pump. I have a SWG with a heat pump that is currently on. I asked the pool guy, that opened my pool, how long to leave the pump going each day. His response was that since I do not have a timer, I can leave it on 24/7. Is this correct? If not, how long should the pump be running each day and during what hours are best?
Before you answer that question, please keep in mind that my wife and I both work, we live on 10 acres that we maintain, have a 5 year old, and both she and I are active in sports. Long story, short, we do not have much free-time, which is why the pool guy said to just leave it running 24/7.
Once again, your help is greatly appreciated.
