I've done some stuff... and seen some things. I am a competent breaker of software, rounder of bolts and bender of nails.

comment How do I keep my pool water clean without nasty chemicals?
A salt water pool is still a pool that uses chlorine, it's just using electrolysis to generate Cl ions from the salt. You will still need to do Chlorine batch adds occasionally to maintain your FC level if the Salt Water Chlorine Generator can't keep up.

comment How long should I run my pool pump for?
troublefreepool.com/pool-school is a good source for information about maintaining your pool. Every anecdote I've read about pool filtration (including the site above) states to run the pump long enough to filter a volume of water equal to your pool capacity at least once like zebediah49 stated above.

comment What are some tips for deep cycle battery maintenance for an offgrid solar system?
You're on the right track. You want to charge the battery and then check each cell's specific gravities against the specific gravity table. Remember to do your temperature compensation as well. If you have low SGs or divergent readings between cells (greater than .05) that is an indicator of a battery going bad. You may be able to "save" the battery w/ an equalizing charge but many times you have to replace the battery. Here's a link to a good explanation of how to maintain your battery. marine-electronics.net/techarticle/battery_faq/b_faq.htm
