The default pump run time is 5 hours in TIMER 1 for sanitisation (the OXI Cell, Ioniser and Pump operate) every day and then a further 2 hours in TIMER 2 for circulation (the Pump only operates with the OXI Cell turning on for the last hour).
Eco pumps are becoming increasingly popular and if speeds are reduced for energy savings, longer running times will be necessary in order to achieve adequate circulation and filtration of your pool. More info on Timers can be found HERE.
The unit has a WINTER MODE function whereby if activated the output of the cell reduces by 50% during the colder months and this should be deactivated once the weather becomes warmer to return to 100%.
If the pool is not heated and you are not using the pool, the pump running hours can be reduced by selecting SINGLE TIMER so the pump run time is reduced. It is important to remember to set it back to DUAL TIMER in the warmer months to ensure adequate circulation.
If the pool is heated and you intend using the pool all year, then simply leave it as it is, to ensure everything runs smoothly and the water remains crystal clear.
