I've got a new pool and it has a 2 speed Hayward pump on it. I'm not experienced with what to do with this, as my last pool's pump just had on and off. The low speed is on a timer and the high speed is on a timer.
1. Is there a problem if the low speed and high speed are both turned on or does this create a 3rd higher speed?
2. What speed should the pumps be on initially on startup? I'm guessing high speed...or should it be low speed day and night for awhile.
3. I believe when they sold us this pool they said this different speed rating was a way to save electricity as the pool could use less electricity and run at night when rates were cheaper....so when do I run high speed? and how long? When do I run low speed? and how long. Is that an amount of time when both should be on? Also I have a booster pump which I believe would need to be run when the pump is at the higher speed...and I think usually you clean during the day.
4. I don't understand how this is going to save my electricity as the cleaner and high speed will probably need to run during the day?
I'm sure this is a cool feature that I just don't understand.
