    Re: How often to run filter?

    Your pump is fairly large compared to your pool size. I doubt you need to run the pump more than eight hours a day, probably less than that. Depending on what your timer is capable of, you might want to split the pump run time into two or three segments spread out across the day/night. There is an article in Pool School on figuring out your ideal run time.
