You probably don’t ever think about it, but your pool pump is one of the most important parts of your pool. It filters out hair, lint, and small pieces of debris that can increase algae growth if left floating nastily in the water.

Keeping The Algae Away


Algae is the last thing you want to see in the pool; it means no swimming for a while until you can get a pool maintenance company to come out and take care of the problem. And as luck often has it, your problem will occur on a busy holiday weekend when you have a pool party planned for 30 people.

This is why it’s so important that you keep your pool pump running in top shape. As long as your pool pump is running properly, the pool water will continue to circulate and the debris will end up right where it should be: in the filter. If you think that your pool pump isn’t quite working the right way, it’s best to call your pool maintenance company for a repair before the pump stops working altogether.


You Might Need A Repair If…


Watch for these signs that point to a pool pump is in need of maintenance or repair:


• Visible wear and tear
• An abnormal whirring sound (worn out bearings)
• Low filter gauge pressure reading (worn impeller)
• Spraying water from the pump housing (a broken seal)
• Poor pump performance (damaged motor shaft)


There are many reasons why your pool pump might stop working all together, such as a short circuit, an overheated motor, or a dehydrated pump. But by paying attention to the sights and sounds of your pool pump, you should be able to have your pool maintenance company get your pump repaired before this happens.

On the off chance that you’re too late for a repair, a good pool maintenance company can replace the pump quickly and efficiently. Remember, the pool pump is an important component of your pool, so check on it often and give it the TLC it needs to keep your pool functioning well for your next pool party.
