Intelliflow extends solar cover

Postby dalehileman » Mon 30 Jul, 2012 11:44

For some reason our new Intelliflow runs, fortunately at low speed, during the 16 hours is supposed to be off. Of course the electrical drain is minimal, this modern pump system designed specifically for economy. However, according to the general rule that an apparent malfunction often reveals a hidden merit, there’s some evidence that letting it run can prolong the life of your plastic solar cover

That is, if you chlorinate with tabs and especially if they’re situated in your skim-port basket. Evidently the continuous circulation keeps the chlorine level more uniform, especially at the shallow end

Can anyone confirm my observations
