Examples of differences are:Chlorine levels; Most experts recommend maintaining free chlorine levels at 1.0ppm to 3.0ppm. In our experience it is better to maintain the free chlorine level at 3.0ppm to 5.0ppm during the swim season. (See links for chlorine.)
Pool pump run time; Although there are many variables to consider such as size of pool, type of filter, size of pump, etc. when determining proper run time, a general guideline is to run the pool at least 12 hours a day in the summer and 6 in winter. (We do not “close” pools as they do up north.) Don’t try to save to much on electricity, it’s cheaper than pool chemicals!Remember! In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice, in practice, there is.Click on the links below for information!
