Constant Use Costs Money
- Constantly running your pool pump can add up quickly in electricity costs, especially if you live in a climate that is warm year-round. The constant hum of the motor can also grow irritating, disrupting your backyard harmony.
Running Your Pool Pump Keeps the Water Clear
- To keep your water clear of dirt and debris, you should run your pool pump regularly. The more you do so, the cleaner your water will be, ensuring crystal clear water and a wonderful swimming experience.
- To maximize pool cleanliness and clarity, experts at Orange County Pool & Spa recommend you run your filter "all the time for maximum circulation and debris removal. A minimum of eight hours a day in summer and four to six hours per day in the winter is highly recommended." All Pool Service & Supply in Orlando, Florida, recommends running the pump 10-12 hours a day in the summer and six to eight hours in the winter.
