Swimming Pools : Swimming Pool Pumps

Aug 19, 2008
Pool pumps are the most important tool for the upkeep and maintenance of the swimming pools. These remarkable mechanical devices work with filters to maintain the cleanliness of swimming pools. Pool pumps come in different sizes and pumping capabilities. Some are made for smaller in-ground pools while others are designed for above ground pools. For both in ground pools and above ground pools, the right pool pump will ease your upkeep of the pool environment.

Pool pumps work by taking water from the pool and passing it through a filter in order to catch as much dirt and debris as possible. Then it pumps the cleansed water back into the swimming pool. Pool pumps can have different speeds and different power levels. The speed and power levels of different pool pumps depend upon their design and specific function.

Pool pumps vary in speed. Some are designed to have single speed while some others come with dual speed. Single speed pumps are the most common pool pumps. As you can tell by their name, they operate at a continuous speed. They are required in those pools that have maximum use. Dual speed pool pumps are more suitable in those pools which are not greatly used. During the days of less traffic, the speed of the pool pump can be slowed down and switched to a more efficient speed of filtering water. With a dual speed pool pump, one can save up to 60% on the cost of the energy consumed.

Every swimming pool has a skimmer that is used to bring together dead leaves, branches, insects and other debris from the water surface. A skimmer is a rake that is used to pull out objects from the water, unquestionably you remember the life guard in the summer walking around the pool and fishing out all the dead insects, leaves and such from the swimming pool.

It is also important to monitor and adjust chemical levels as required. If the chemical content is balanced as required, but the water is still unclear, then filtering time should be added in half hour increments until the desired clarity of water is achieved. Reduced filtering time saves money. There are no hard and fast rules for this, and a little trial and error is required to find the lowest required recirculation time.
