How Long, Per Day, Should Pump be Run?

How long per day does the filter pump need to be run on an inground concrete pool?

Perhaps this is one of the newbiest questions I could ask?

Hi, This depends on how much water you have in the pool and how much water the pump will run per minute.

I have a 22,000 u.s. gallon pool and run the filter 6-8 hours per day. When raining I run the filter all the time until the rain stops. I then shock the pool and run again for 24 hours. Then backwash and go back to the 6-8 hours per day.

This also depends on how much use the pool gets. The more use, the longer to run.
