Just wanted some opinions from the group.........How many hours a days should my pool pump and filter run. I live in texas so we are starting to get 80 degree days now, and sun hits my pool maybe 7-8 hours a day, more during the heat of the summer. If I dont have enough information in my signature, please ask me and I'll report back. Right now it is running about 7 hours, I have a little algea clinging to my rock and around returns, etc but not much. I will be testing with my new TF100 as soon as it arrives which should be about 1-2 days from now.
