Your pool pump is a very important part of what actually makes the water in your pool flow correctly. We could say though that these pumps are actually a little more sensitive than people realize. Especially a lot of the pumps that had been used in previous generations. They could get damaged by being plugged into a current that was too high for them. That is actually why it is usually a good idea to have a special socket created for the pump so that you can plug it in and now that it is going to work correctly. As with a lot of other pool parts the lack of proper water flow will tend to cause damages to the system.
Is The Pump Worth Repairing?
We have to start with this question even though this is a service page on repairs. The fact of the matter is that the lack of proper maintenance is going to be one of the main factors that can contribute to your pump failing. That, and the fact that the pump may have just run it’s course and needs to be replaced. The first thing that we are going to want to figure out is whether or not it is actually worth it to replace your pump.
The Pump & The System Need To Match
There are times where people will remodel their pool on the outside, but they want to keep using the same system. This is a lot of times not sustainable. Especially if the remodling process did not really take any of the operational pieces into consideration. We don’t want to talk bad about anyone here, but a lot of times when you get people who are not pool pros to provide a service for you this will happen. What you will need to do is adjust the pump to get it to fit your current or replace it entirely!
Pool Pump Maintenance
A lot of times the best way to make sure that we are actually going to be able to make certain repairs in the pump is to provide proper maintenance to the system. Things, like keeping the pump well oiled and making sure that there are no leaks within the system, can go a long way in making sure the pump can remain in working shape for a while. Without real maintenance, it is going to be tough to guarantee that the pump is going to be able to work each season.
The Assembly Is Everything
One of the best ways that you can guarantee your pump is going to be well off for years to come is making sure that it is properly assembled and hooked up the right way. You would be surprised how many times we have had to repair very primitive mistakes made by amateur contractors. If you really want to make sure that the system is going to be working properly you can give us a call and we will help you out. We also do the pool tile repair.
