I have a salt pool and it likes a long low speed run for maximum oxy saturation.

    What part of Long Island are you from? <solicitation deleted>

      First of all, that's expensive. Really expensive.
      Depends on the size of your pool. Do you realize the amount it expenses to run your pump every day for six hours?
      Other than cost factor it comes with another loophole i.e. sunlight. They only run when the sun shines - which means 8-10 hours on normal days, less on a cloudy/rainy day.
      They are not a good choice if you're ever going to have night time pool parties, as for these you will probably want to run your pump at night.
