How many people just allow their pumps to run 24 hours a day? I have a dual speed 1.5HP that I've been allowing to run 24/7 on low speed since April. I haven't bothered messing with seeing what happens with running 12 hours a day and I haven't even purchased a timer yet. Just curious on who else runs their pumps all of the time. I realize that various environmental conditions will call for different results based on run time. Some people may need to run their filters that much but most probably don't. Thanks!

Cool. At least I know that I'm not the only one. :) Thanks for the input.

I think at some point I'm going to try the 12 hr run per day and see what happens. That is, when I'm not too lazy to get a timer set up.
