How to Tell if You Need a Swimming Pool Pump Motor Replacement

  • Age – One way to tell if you need a swimming pool pump motor replacement is to consider the age of these components. In general, swimming pool pumps and motors are designed to last between eight and ten years, so if your components are nearing that age, then we encourage you to give us a call.
  • Water Circulation – The purpose of your pool pump is to keep water moving to ensure it doesn’t become stagnant and dirty. With this in mind, if water doesn’t seem to be circulating as well as it used to, then it might be time for a swimming pool pump motor replacement.
  • Energy Consumption – Another way to tell if you might need a swimming pool pump motor replacement is to check your electric bill. If your energy costs seem higher for no apparent reason—meaning, if you haven’t changed your energy use habits—then it’s worth getting your pool pump checked. The pump and motor may have become less efficient, leading to the spike in energy consumption.
