Are you having trouble with your swimming pool pump but not sure what the problem is? At S & H Pools, we are prepared to help you with any swimming pool pump issues. Here are the top signs you are in need of swimming pool pump repair.
- Noise – Typically your pump should be operating quietly. Noise coming from your pump typically means there is an issue with your bearings. It is common for rust to occur and jeopardize these parts of your pump. Luckily, this is something we at S & H Pools are happy to repair for you.
- Age – The typical life span of a swimming pool pump is 11.5 years. If your pump is older than 11.5 years, you may want to keep a close eye on it. Swimming pool pumps have come a long way in the past 10 years. If you find yourself having issues, it may be financially wiser to replace your pump altogether.
- Defective Suction – If your pump is no longer sucking in the water as it should, you probably have either a clogged pump or the suction motor is going out. Suction is essential to run your water through the filtration system and clear the water of any debris.
- Murky Water Color – If your water is looking murky, green, or anything but clean, you probably need repair on your pump and filtration system. This fix more than likely needs a professional from S & H Pools to take care of the repair.
These are some of the most common issues pool owners have with their swimming pool pumps. If you are experiencing any of these issues, please give us at S & H Pools a call to further discuss any issues you are having.
