Topic :Running A Pool Pump
We have an 18′ above ground pool. How often and how long should we run the pump on it?
There isn’t a good answer to your question. A lot depends on the pool temperature, amount of use, and it’s surroundings. If the water is very warm then probably about 6-8 hours a day, if it’s used quite a bit then maybe 4 hours will be fine, if there’s a lot of trees by the pool then you may need 10-12 hours. Like I said it all depends on the pool. If the water is getting cloudy, then run it more.
