A pool pump is the heart of your pool’s plumbing system. It keeps water circulating throughout your pool, keeps chemicals mixed and removes debris so you can continue to enjoy using your Austin pool longer. Although they are very important, pool pumps are also simple in design. A motor spins an impeller inside the pump, which creates suction, drawing water from a pool into a filter. From there, water is sent back into your pool and a basket inside the pump collects debris, so the impeller doesn’t clog.

Pool pump maintenance is a must for keeping your Austin pool running smoothly. Be sure to regularly clean your pool pump and the area around it. This is to prevent algae from growing in and around the pump, which can clog your system and create other debris. Be sure to also dust off the pump itself so that dust doesn’t get into the system. Some sites may advise you to lubricate your motor. Do not do it. On modern equipment, this will only damage the rubber seals.

When looking for an Austin pool pump, be sure to check the maximum and minimum water flow rate as well as the size, to pick the right pump for your pool. One term that might be used in reference to your pool pump is “feet of head.” This refers to the total resistance of the flow of water. The greater the resistance, which is measured in feet of head, the lower the flow rate. The greater the resistance, the harder it is for the pump to push through.
