I've currently got a single speed pump that runs 24/7 and is hardwired in, such that I have to go flip a breaker in the pool shed to turn it on/off. I was told by both the previous owners and the pool company who initially introduced me to the maintenance said that because of the size of the pool I should run the pump continuously (likely the previous owners were told the same by the pool company as well). I've since cut all ties with the pool company and am not really convinced that I need to run it continuously. So, I've been thinking about installing a timer and when the motor eventually burns out, replacing it with a variable speed one. Am I right that I needn't run it 24/7 (especially with low bather loads)? and assuming I install a timer, does it make sense to connect both the SWG and pump to the timer in parallel? The SWG won't run without the pump running anyway, but I figure why even have it on at all if the pump isn't running. Interested in your thoughts, thanks!
