Q?

HOW LONG SHOULD I RUN MY PUMP?

A.

During the fall and wintertime, a pump should be on for about 3-4 hours per day. During the summer time it should be on within 6-8 hours per day.

Q?

WHAT IS THE NORMAL PRESSURE FOR MY FILTER?

A.

Based on the equipment and feature, every pool system has different pressure restrictions that were built with your pool. New owners always receive normal pressure for their system with their start up instructions. If you are not the original owner or cannot remember the normal pressure of your system it is recommended that you backwash or clean the filter to establish a normal clean filter pressure.

Q?

HOW OFTEN SHOULD I BACKWASH MY FILTER?

A.

Filters should be back-washed every 4 to 6 weeks. If the pressure increases then 8 to 10 lbs. over normal clean filter pressure. The filter should also be completely disassembled, should be inspected and cleaned every six months to ensure proper filtration.
