Pool Pump Repair
A pool pump can be considered as the heart of your swimming pool’s circulation system and without the pump your pool would become a stagnant and dirty mess. If your pool does not have a pump that runs properly and efficiently, it won’t be long before the crystal clear water turns murky and your pool becomes a swamp. As a key component of your swimming pool, it’s critical to understand when your pool pump is failing and may require repair or replacement. If you want to ensure that your pool pump is always running as efficiently as possible, you should consider hiring a professional pool pump service.
How to know your pool pump requires repairing?
The following are some of the signs that indicate it is time for a pool pump repair or replacement:
- It makes noises: The pool pump should run softly so that it does not disturb you or your neighbors while you are trying to relax. Any strange noise is a sign the pool pump needs repairing. Do you hear grinding or screeching? If this is the case, you should contact a pool repair and servicing provider before the noise becomes unbearable.
- Your pump motor keeps shutting down: The pool pump motor must always run smoothly, and if it keeps shutting down after only a short amount of time, it could imply that it has become overheated or clogged. These problems should be investigated and corrected as soon as they are discovered. Delaying any pump motor repairs will only result in higher costs in the end.
- Suction loss: Pool pumps are designed to take in water and filter it before pumping it back into the pool, debris-free. If the pressure indicator indicates that your pool is not operating at full capacity in terms of how much water is being drawn into the pump at one time, you may have a blocked pump or a worn-out motor. You will need to consult with specialists to ensure that your pool pump is operating at top efficiency.
- Green, off-color, or muddy water: If you’ve had a pool for a long time, you’re undoubtedly accustomed to the appearance of clear water. Green or murky water is generally an indication that your pool pump or filtration system is malfunctioning. Contact a professional to determine the root of the problem and resolve it as soon as possible.
