I would like to know how much time I should filter the water per day?
The filter does 14000 liters per hour the pool has near 50000 liters.

thanks in advance

You want your pool to "turn over" at least once a day (filter all the water). To do a proper calculation, in addition to your pumps volume per hour you would need to know the suction "head", filter pressure, length of pipe run, etc.

Not knowing those things and assuming nothing is out of the ordinary, I would say about 8 hours a day minimum would be good. Of course, more is better...but more expensive.
I'm no expert...just a long time pool owner. The real experts are at www . troublefreepool . com
