Swimming Pool Pumps Explained

The swimming pool pump is the heart of the pool system, just like your engine is the heart of your car.  Your pool pump is a key component of the filtration process.

How Pool Pump Works
 The pool pump draws water from your pool into the skimmer box, where it's passed through a fine strainer basket the hair and lint pot and onto the impeller.  The water is then returned to the pool by the pool return lines.
Choosing The Right Pool Pump
 It's important to size your pool pump correctly. This will ensure that your pool runs at an optimum level, resulting in fewer problems, easier maintenance, lower energy costs and longer equipment life.

There are 4 questions you need to answer before speaking to your pool professional to enable them to recommend a pool pump suitable for your needs:

1. What's the Total Pool Volume? Calculate, in metres (Width x Length x Average Depth) x 1000.

2. How often do you want to circulate the water - every 4 or 8 hours?

3. Will you be using any water features or in-floor cleaning systems?

4.What is the distance from the pool to where the pool pump will be located?

If you are building a new pool your builder will ensure that your pump and filter are correctly matched for optimum performance.

Pool Pump Maintenance Tip

The hair and lint pot needs to be emptied and cleaned on a regular basis throughout the swimming season.  If it's allowed to clog up and block the water flow, the seals will crack and the motor burn out.
