What is a pool pump, and why is it important?

The pool pump is the heart of your pool system. The pump is responsible for circulating water through your system by drawing in water from the pool (through the drains, skimmers, or suction-side vacuum), pushing that water through your pool filter, heater, chlorinator, and then ultimately back into your pool clean and refreshed. The circulation of water created by the pump is also responsible for evenly dispersing chemicals throughout your water to ensure that your chemical treatments are actually effective in sanitizing the water.

Without a properly functioning pump, you would have stagnant, unsanitary, and algae-infested water in no time. That’s why it’s important to address any pool pump problems as soon as the arise. Our team of experienced repair technicians stand by ready to repair or replace a broken pump and to keep your system running in top shape.

We are dealers of all major brands, including Pentair, Hayward, Jandy, and more. We keep inventory of the most commonly used parts and equipment to make sure that we can assist our customers in case of emergency. Our deep relationships with these manufacturers allow us to offer the most competitive prices and source the equipment or parts that you need within a day or two (if we don’t already have it in stock).

Pump Repairs

If your pump is relatively new, has a small leak, is making screeching or humming noises, or just not circulating water as quickly as it should be, you might want to consider attempting to repair it. Often times, we can save our customers thousands of dollars by repairing or rebuilding their pump instead of selling them a new one.

The most common pump repairs and rebuilds include:

  • Full pump seal and gasket replacements
  • Replumbing and installing high temperature PVC unions
  • Electrical rewiring and GFI installation
  • Capacitor and electrical componenet replacements
  • Full pump rebuilds (including internal parts such as seal plates, diffusers, impellers, shaft seals, and drives)

Pump Replacements

Pool pumps typically have a lifespan of 8 to 12 years, depending on how frequently they are used and how well they are maintained. So when it comes time to replace your old pump, our team is here to take care of it. We are dealers of all major brands (including Pentair, Hayward, Jandy, and others), and work directly with those manufacturers to get you the best price and warranty.

The most common pump installations include:

  • Variable speed pumps
  • Single speed pumps (where applicable)
  • Adding or adjusting the equipment pad
  • Adding or adjusting plumbing as needed
  • Adding GFI and other electrical components
  • Full automation compatibility
