How many hours per day should I run my pump?

There are many factors to consider: bather load, gallons of water, pump horsepower, type and size of filter just to name a few. A good guideline is 6-8 hours a day. On the cooler days and early and late season, you can cut the run time down to 4-6 hours because there are usually less swimmers and cooler water which would require less chemicals. In peak season, when it is the hottest, raising the run time to 6-8 hours per day will help to keep the pool clean and circulating during its time of heaviest use.
