Introduction to the use of swimming pool pumps in the treatment of circulating water in swimming pools

Principle of circulating water treatment in swimming pool:

As we knew, the circulating water treatment in the swimming pool is a long-term statement that the air has been mostly cleared of the swimming pool pumps and filter pumps that are in the pool. When you have lost the prime of the pump, your pump no longer pumps water through it. Sometimes it can be very difficult to regain the prime numbers on the pump. These tips will help you get gold back to your swimming pool pump and filtration system.

Firstly, the swimming pool pump is turned off when the swimming pool circulating water treatment is performed. Now, close all and all valves on the suction side of the pump. On the one hand, this includes the main drain, separator, and vacuum line. on the other hand, if you have a pressure relief valve in your filtered air, open it to relieve the built-in pressure. Slowly open the pump filter cover.

Note: obviously, If you do not have an exhaust valve, open the filter cover a little bit to let the pressure escape. Check the hair/lint filter basket for debris and clean up if necessary. Make sure that the shopping basket is in good condition and is not twisted or broken. Meanwhile, if it is damaged, you may need to check the impeller of the pump to make sure there is no debris. In addition, you should damage the pump before replacing the shopping basket.

When treating pool water, check the gasket or O-ring on the top of the filter to make sure it is clean and in good condition so that it will make a good seal. Replace the basket and fill the bucket with filtered water or garden hose. Replace the filter cover for sure, it makes a good seal. If you have the knobs tightened, you should tighten them evenly using only your hands. Do not use a wrench or other tools because you may tighten it too much and cause it to twist or break. If you cover the screw-down, the same principle applies to tighten only by hand. Do not use a tool, or you may tighten too much

Quick Buying Tips to pick a right pool pump:

  1. To find the right size of the pump for your swimming pool, consider the flow rate.
  2. For small above ground pool, a medium-sized pump pool can work perfectly. But for the large in-ground pools, only a high-quality pump can yield good results.
  3. Do not invest heavily, if you are using the pool only for a certain period of time. A basic model can suffice your needs well.
  4. To give consideration of the long-term performance, a self-priming pump with a pre-filter is an appropriate pump to consider.
  5. Before you finalize your decision, make sure to consider noise levels as one of the prime factors.
  6. If your major source of supply depends on the saltwater, it is imperative to consider a pool pump that can disinfect such water.
  7. Be it a cartridge filter or a sand filter, a filter should be picked up which is compatible with the flow rate of the pump.
  8. finally, there are three-speed options available with Pool Pumps:
    Single-speed: With the one-speed setting option, the impeller runs at a constant speed with no change. It consumes more energy and many states do not allow its usage
    Dual Speed: You can set the speed as low or high. In high mode, it pushes the electricity bill at a higher side.  It is recommended to keep it in low mode to save energy.
    Variable Speed: With a permanent magnetic motor (PMM), these are the finest options to save on energy bills. Bit higher on pricing, it yields good returns in the long run with considerable savings on electricity.

  1. The right flow rate is mandatory to consider yielding satisfactory performance results. The characteristics of the pool should be largely taken into consideration. If the filtration cycle can complete in four to six hours, it will be the ideal situation.
  • With more bends on the pool-piping layout, the higher flow rate is required.
  • If the machine room is distant from a pool, heavy flow is appropriate to choose
  • If the pump requires pushing the water up in conjunction with the skimmers, only higher flows can yield good results.
  • A powerful pump is capable of dealing with the filter clogging when the pool required considerable maintenance.
  1. It is a mandate to be sure if the above-ground pool or in-ground pool pumps are required. Any change in pool type will lead to the relocation of the pool filter.
  • A top-mounted pump is required for an above-ground pool. If both the filter and the pump are on the same level, a side-mount pump shall be required to install.
  • Also, cartridge pumps and DE require the side-mounted pumps.
  • Top-mount pumps can be worked out for sand filter functions.
