How long should I run my filter?

As long as there is water in your pool, you must run your system every day in order to properly circulate and filter all the water. Your pool water should turn over about twice per day in the hottest months, so your pump capacity, plumbing and any flow restrictions also affect run time decisions. Generally, filters should be run 8-10 hours per day in the Summer and 4-8 hours per day in the winter. As a weekly servicecustomer, we set your pool timer to the best run time for your specific pool given the season and our experience.
