No matter your set up, every swimming pool you own (with the exception of a kiddie wading pool of course) will require a pump and filter system. You need to be able to make the right choice in these areas because you do not want to be under serviced or buy something that is way too big for your operation.
Most pool owners have a standard single speed pool pump. Single speed pumps are simply that — they pump at just one speed. However, having only one speed implies that when the pump is turned on, it uses the maximum amount of electrical energy open to it. Electrical energy consumption and also the price of operation are determined by the pump size, in horsepower, and also the R.P.M., or speed. Having a standard pump speed set to 3450 revolutions per minute (R.P.M.), the only speed pump uses quite a bit of energy. Since the pump has only one speed, you cant ever save money on your time bill from month to month if you don’t simply shut the pump completely off.
When we think of pool covers, most people assume that their main function is to prevent fallen leaves and debris from getting into the pool. Covers do that, of course. But what is more important, they prevent your pool from losing its temperature.
Following the above two steps, remove debris from the Nokomis Pool Repair Service basket. Turn the pump off before you open the basket, remove it and then empty the gathered debris. Your filtration system will run more smoothly if the basket is clean so the water can flow freely through. When you have the basket out, check the oil rings for cracks and replace it if necessary.
For instance, did you know that after all these years new energy efficient swimming pool pumps are now being introduced to the market that actually pump more water for less money? Also, newly designed cooling fans mean less noise from the pump house?
Two-speed pumps, however, have become popular because they use less energy and therefore have a much less expensive of operation. When set to low speed, a two-speed pump runs at approximately 1750 R.P.M. – a reasonable speed for many pools and spas. If necessary, the rate can increase to the standard 3450 R.P.M. Many spas are equipped with two-speed pumps, using the low pump speed for filtration and the higher speed for water therapy and fast jet action.
If the pump has not primes itself, then close the valve and turn off the pump at the mains. It may be necessary to repeat the process of filling the basket with water, turning on the pump and opening a valve several times before the air is sufficiently removed from the system.
Neglecting your swimming pool pump could be a costly mistake resulting in big headaches, an ugly pool, and expensive repairs. Avoiding these problems could be quick and easy. The bottom line is understanding your swimming pool and just how often it needs attention. Then, implementing a routine of performing the above mentioned tasks as needed.
