Why Motor and Pump Function is Important

For most people swimming pools are just big basins of water. However, there is plenty of technology at work in an average swimming pool that allows you to enjoy splashing and swimming in clean water. All pools, big and small, work basically the same: a combination of filtration and chemical treatment allows the water to remain clean. There are seven major components needed to make a pool work: basin, motorised pump, water filter, chemical feeder, drains, returns and PVC plastics plumbing linking all of the six components.

Tips to Keep your Pool in Proper Working Order

The heart of a pool is located in the motor and pump. These components need to be in proper working order so that your pool will run efficiently and properly throughout the year. In most situations, your eyes and ears will tell when the pump and motor are not working correctly.

Keep the motor and pump dry, clean and without any leaks to ensure they are running smoothly and efficiently. Call a pool expert immediately if you hear an unusual sound or humming coming from the motor and pump.

Another vital component that keeps your pool running efficiently is the strainer basket. Check the strainer basket often for signs of clogging, algae growth and cracking. The motor and pump may be damaged if there is cracking, O-ring damage or a break in the pot cover. Properly functioning pool equipment will allow you to enjoy your swimming pool for a long time.

Regular Pool Maintenance

It is the homeowners’ responsibility to properly care and maintain their swimming pool. The basic cleaning and maintenance of a pool does not have to be time consuming and labour intensive, if you know what you are doing.

If you are not inclined to do your own pool maintenance and willing to pay the extra expense, hire a pool professional to do it for you. It will be the job of the pool maintenance experts to make sure the pool chemicals are properly balanced and free of debris. They will also be able to tell you if they see signs of abnormality in your motor or pump equipment and recommend appropriate action.

Most companies offer a range of pool cleaning and maintenance packages. You can choose a weekly, monthly or annual cleaning and maintenance of your pool. There is usually a package available that will suit your needs and budget. Hiring a professional pool cleaner will cost you, but the added time you can have to enjoy your pool and less time on pool maintenance is worth it.
