    How long should I run my pump and filter on a 30' round above ground pool and should I run it at night or during the day?

    8-12hours per day is a good place to start. Sometimes you can get by down in the 5-6 hour range, but it can take a while to figure it out, and the time you need may vary from week to week depending on debris in the air and bather load. Typically, run it at night when you want the pool cooler.
