all, is it still necessary to get 1 or 1.5 of water turnover per day in the winter time? if i'm paying for electricity when i shouldn't be i'd sure be happy to cut that back some.

any feedback is appreciated!

If you're leaving the pool open then I wouldn't go much below 1 turn a day. Having said that, You can run it less and less until you start seeing some cloudiness then bump it back up a bit.

Once I cover mine I turn the pump off until it gets cold enough to freeze and then I start running it again.
