Just got a Pentair superflo VS 1.5. Ran single speed for 4 hours. How long for the VS?

I used to run my singles speed pump for only 4 hours a day. I just had the VS pump installed and told that it will run from 8-8 each day at 3 different settings. Will this actually be saving me money though? Going from a 4 hour run to 12? Does it need to run for 12 hours?

You can still run the pump for the same amount of time, just at lower speeds which will save energy. No reason to run longer unless you need the time for something other than circulation.
