Inground pool

is it better to run filter system during night time rather than during hot sunny days ? (heat & sun effects on chemicals in pool)

Hmmm, I don't think it makes a whole lot of difference. I run mine during the day for about 6 hours. Only time I run it at night is if the water gets too warm; then I switch on the solar and run it at night to cool it down a little. I prefer to have the pump running when the pool is actually being used somewhat. Among other things it helps stir up the water and get any sediment/impurities roiled up to get sucked in and thru the filter.

Actually it makes a big difference when you run your pool. You want to run it during daylight hours since this is the time when the sun is pulling chlorine and chemicals from the pool. Run pool during daylight a min of 12 hours for sufficient bacterial control.

Pool Pump

I would recommend running it also for 12 hours during the day say 8 - 8. My inground which is 16 x 32 runs this way.

ew. i would definitely run it during the day. i wouldn't want my water sitting stagnant with the sun beating down on it all day. then again, we just run ours 24/7.
