Pool Pumps need to be selected for their application. We will help determine the correct pool pump for your filtration, solar, pool water feature, heaters or in-floor cleaning system. This might be a new pool pump to replace your exisiting pump or a new pool pump for a new swimming pool.
We stock a range of new variable speed pool pumps which can save you thousands of dollars on the life time of the pool pump.
Filtration Pool Pumps
Pool Pumps are the heart of the pool circulation system. If you are replacing your existing pool pump we'll need to match the size of the pump to your existing pool filter and to your pool size. Incorrectly sized pool pumps will not only cause filtration problems but waste electricity.
Oversizing pool pumps on sand filters can cause channelling of media and cause high pressure in the filter, ultimately damaging the equipment. This means that the water burrows holes from the top of the filter to the bottom so that the water is no longer filtered. Oversizing pool pumps on cartridge filter will also result in high pressures which can damage both the filter elements and other filter components.
Pool Pumps for other Applications
We can advise you on which pool pump will be suitable to replace your existing pump in any other pool application whether you are replacing a pool pump for heating and water features. All heaters will have a flow rate which need to be matched. Bigger pumps are not better. In a solar heating situation a large pump will mean water passes through the solar matting quickly and heat transfer does not take place efficiently. Gas Heaters also have minium and maxium flow rates. We strongly recommend before purchasing a pool pump you speak to us for advice.
How do they Work?
Pool pumps are centrifugal pumps which spins water using an impellor that is attached to the pump shaft. As pool water enters the pump impeller the rotational force drives water into a diffuser and then the volute where it exits the pump and continues through the rest of the system.
It is important to note that pool pumps must be primed with water in order to operate.
