    Pump rin time?

    Looking at my pool info in my signature, can you suggest how many hours daily shoul I run my pump to get a complete turnover?

    Thank you

    Getting a complete turnover is not as important as running long enough to have clear water you are happy with. Often that is significantly less time then needed for a complete turnover. See:
    TFP Expert who uses Pool School and my TF100 test kit along with PoolMath for my: Round 11K gallon AGP with deep end, 20" sand filter, Matrix 1hp 2spd, 6 2ftX20ft solar panels (and solar cover!), Intex SWCG (copper bars disconnected) and a Rubadub hot tub (chlorine). The SLAM process is not finished until: 1. CC < 0.5 ppm, 2. An OCLT < 1.0 ppm and, 3. The water is crystal clear.
