Just moved here to San Tan Valley AZ and had a pool installed. We purchased one of those plastic bubble covers and cut it to the pool shape (kidney). The tech who set up our pump, set it to run 8 hours: 3 hrs @ 2600 rpm's for a heavy cleaning and 5 hrs @ 1725 rpm's at a normal cleaning. These run from 10 AM to 1 PM for the heavy cleaning and then right into the normal cleaning from 1 PM to 6 PM. Basically these hours are due to our neighbors bedroom is just over the wall from our equipment. It is fine right now. Not planning on using pool until it warms up here, what I'm told end of May. Okay, with the cover and the pump running those hours for 7 days, am I okay for the winter. I have tested with a test kit and have had the water tested at a pool store and everything is good. I am checking once a week to see if things are good and they are. By the way, it is a salt water pool. Still producing 3300 ppm and keeping the chlorine in line. Since this is our first pool, ARE WE OKAY FOR THE WINTER MONTHS?
