Just bought a house with a beautiful i/g pool.
The pump is a 2-speed model which runs 24 hours a day, about 8 of those on high speed as directed by a mechanical timer. Is this normal to 2-speed pump pools? Should I replace the timer with one that would allow me to run it for 8 hours on low, 8 on high, and 8 off (assuming that would provide sufficient flow to turnover the pool at least twice daily that is)?
I'm mainly concerned about saving energy if at all possible. Thoughts?
