Thread: Do I adjust pool pump when I adjust SWG?

    Do I adjust pool pump when I adjust SWG?

    My SWG turns on at 9:00 pm so I just changed it from 3 hours to 2 hours like I said I would. My question is, my pool pump is on for 6 hours - should I lower it to 4 hours? Is there any need to run it for 6?

    There is a article in Pool School that explains how to determine the ideal pump run time.

    Thank you. I read it before, and my manual, but I read it again anyway. I guess I was thinking somebody would say "run it for ___ hours if you run SWG for 2 hours." Ha! Wishful thinking? I guess I just need to play with it. It seems fine now. I don't suppose it would hurt anything to run it longer than it needs right?
