Understanding Swimming Pool Pumps

  2. 2. Understanding Swimming Pool Pumps Swimming pool pumps are the heart of the pool’s water circulation system. They are pool devices that pull the water out of the skimmer, drain the water, and then push it to the filter, heater, and all other designated areas. With the centrifugal motion they create, they keep the water moving through and around the system. Pool pumps are also useful in maintaining the water in the pool clean and clear. They allow the water to flow into a strainer basket so that any large debris such as grass or leaves can be collected. The pump’s basket aims to remove anything that may cause clogging to the pump. When clogging happens, machines such as pipe bursting equipment are then used. Types of Pool Pumps Above-ground pool pumps – These are specifically designed for above-ground swimming pools. They are usually made with strong, heavy-duty motors that automatically project thermal overload. They feature a large strainer basket, usually with transparent lid, where gathered debris is accumulated. They are generally durable and corrosion-resistant, hence require little maintenance. In-ground pool pumps – These are primarily intended for in-ground swimming pools. They are designed with higher flow operation and quicker filtering cycles than above-ground models. They retain water even after initial prime for quick and easy start-up. These typically offer a quiet operation. Purchasing Pool Pumps Choose a pool pump with a size according to the size of your swimming pool. Pool pumps that are too small for your swimming pool will tend to offer poor filtration

Pool pumps that are too large, on the other hand, can cause cavitation and damage the construction and equipment on your swimming pool. In addition, look for a pool pump that is made of precision-molded blend of reinforced plastic that offers superior durability and heat resistance. For a more quiet pool pumping operation, choose a two-speed pool pump that offers noise reduction system. Pool pumps should be used and maintained well to ensure proper function and avoid pool clogs.
