There seems to be some uncertainty with regard to creating a schedule in screen logic to run the main pump (VF series) for 24hrs without stopping - both my pool guy and local Pentair rep say there needs to be a break in the cycle but the manual seems to say otherwise.
If you want a circuit to run 24 hours a day without stopping should the program be from 8:00am-8:00am or from 8:00am-7:59am?
They have said doing from 8-8 "confuses" the system but it seemed to be working fine for me before they came and changed everything.
I want to background filter my pool 24/7 but the pump won't come on unless I put a gpm in and then create the schedule - then it just runs that gpm but it's not background filtering because I've told it what gpm to run at.
When you create a schedule with a pump gpm the software warns you that running that circuit will disable background filtering.
I guess what I'm getting at as a whole is how the schedules/circuits should be configured to background filter 24/7?
Right now the VF pump is on the first relay's line side and my ozone and uv are on the load side of the same relay. I tried not putting any circuits in the pump set up section and configured the system for background filtering - the software would say the pump was on but the pump won't run unless I put in a circuit named pool with a specified gpm... Uggg
