Pool Filter Systems and Pumps

Pool pumps are of the most important component in keeping your water clean and safe. Working with pool filter systems, pool pumps circulate water in your pool to keep dirt and debris from settling while capturing contaminants. The size of your pool will largely determine what kind of pool pump you need.

 

There are different variations of pool pumps. Single-speed pools pumps operate at a fixed rate. Their speed is set to make sure the water in your pool is moving through the filter. These systems are inexpensive to purchase but may not be right for everyone due to a lack of low-power option. Two-speed pool pumps include a secondary speed that is slower. You can operate the pool pump at this speed and still keep water circulating at a rate that will keep water clean. When you want to vacuum or run a pool heater, you can then turn up the speed.  Variable speed pool pumps offer far more control and efficiency for moving water. Using a permanent magnet motor, the user can control the precise flow rate. These systems also run with less noise and generally cost significantly less to operate.

 

Whether you have an in-ground pool or above-ground pool, pumps are important. If you are running pool vacuums, water elements, or other features you may need to purchase a higher-power pump. Also consider how much you are willing to spend to operate your equipment. Opting for a dual- or variable-speed pool pump may save you on energy costs in the long run.
