Is their debris floating around your pool? Do you have black spots popping up on your tiles? You may be experiencing a lack of pool pump efficiency. Whilst these can be signs of other problems such as pool filter issues or lack of chlorine, a key part of what keeps your pool clean and useable is your pool pump.

Why is your pool pump so important?

It is paramount that the water in swimming pools is circulated properly. This circulation moves the water through the heating systems but most importantly through the filtration system, keeping your pool clean and sanitary.

A pool pump is the tool that keeps the water in your swimming pool circulated efficiently. It makes sure the water flows into the filter and the heating system. Additionally, water flowing effectively will maintain the other parts of your pool, such as your pool filter by stopping air suction.

There are many different reasons why you motor may be faulty. Before thinking about replacements, check your power supply. Sometimes it can be a simple issue with a lack of power reaching your motor. Once you have checked this, listen to your motor to hear any sounds that are unfamiliar. When checking for a capacitor problem, you may be able to hear a humming sound.

Another common problem is fan failure. This can be from a build up of leaves and debris clogging up the fan and vents. Be sure to have this cleaned out and your motor may be back to normal!

When your water is not being pumped properly, it can be the start of lots of issues. If you pump is not moving any water around, be sure to start by checking the lint pot lid is fitted correctly and airtight. Once checked, if your pool still has bad circulation, check that your skimmer box is empty. It is normal for your basket to become full of debris, leaves and sludge.
