How long should I run my pool?

It depends on your own individual pool and it’s equipment. It is best practice to circulate your pool’s water volume twice a day for residential pools and twice again for commercial pools (x4).  For residential pools, it is best practice to run your pool for 8 hours a day. It is also best practice to split this up evenly into 2 cycles per day. 6am to 10am and again in PM works very well for summer time and summer time usage. When the year starts to get into the cooler months, the filtration can be reduced down to 6 hours per day for Autumn and Spring. Winter time can allow you to reduce your running times to 4 hours a day. However, the water quality must be maintained and running times may need to be re-increased depending on weather conditions.
