New Pump, no idea how long to run it

Hello, I recently had the Intelliflo VSF installed in my pool.  I am not sure how long I should run the pump to get at least one turnover per day.  The pool is 10,000 gallons and I have it connected to a Pentair Clean and Clear Plus 520 cartridge filter.  I am pretty sure the intake pipe to the pump is 2 1/4".  I also have a Hayward Navigator pool vacuum that I would like to use as well.  Any help would be appreciated.


Thanks, Clint

Clint - You'll have to figure out how many gallons per minute each speed is churning out. The easiest way to figure that out is to add a flow meter to the plumbing. That way, you'll know how long it will take to turnover 10,000 gallons once a day.
