Pool pumps are essential for the proper functioning of any pool. It keeps a pool in working order by circulating water through the pool and filter. A pump is the heart of a pool’s circulation system and its main function is to pump water through the pool’s filter. It pulls water from a suction point in the pool and it pushes it through the pool’s filter, heater and chemical filtration system and then back into the pool through its return ports. This creates a continuous cleaning cycle, keeping a pool clean and functioning properly.
Bigger is not always better when it comes to pool pumps. A pool pump that is too large can hinder filtration and can even damage a pool’s filter and/or heater. It is therefore very important to know the size of a pool before purchasing a pool pump. If there is additional equipment (such as water features) installed into the pool, it will have to be taken it into account when deciding what size pump is going to be purchased. The more equipment is installed into a pool, the more powerful the pump needs to be.
