Pool Care Basics: Filtration & Circulation 

Water Circulation

The return jets keep the water moving and spread the chemicals evenly throughout the pool. To maximize circulation, position your return jets at a 45-degree angle downward and establish an overall-circulation pattern in the pool to minimize dead spots.

Pump and Filter Operation

During Pool start-up and heavy-use periods, run the pump continuously. Running your pump 24 hours a day is ideal to prevent pool problems. In order to qualify for the Sustain System Algae-Free Limited Warranty, you must run the pump at least 12 hours each day. The pump and filter serve as the heart of your pool's filtration and circulation system. Check both frequently for performance and consult your Sustain System Dealer if you have questions.
