University of Florida Pool Study

The guideline for pool circulation in  Houston, Texas and in the southern climes as well has always been one hour of pump run time for every 10°F.  For example, if it's 80°F outside today in Cypress, Texas then you should run your pool's pump 8 hours. But is that correct? Not necessarily! Read the results for the study performed in Florida - you are in for a pleasant surprise.

Hint: You may not have to run your pool pump 10 hours a days to achieve satisfactory results in your pool.
