As the saying goes, some jobs are best left to the professionals, and installing a swimming pool water pump is one of them! Today, there are several pump options available to accommodate your needs and budget, and the pros at Irish Electric have the experienced required to install them for you.
What Pool Water Pumps Do
A pool pump is essential to keeping your water clear and clean. It pulls water from your pool and circulates it through a filter to remove bacteria, algae, and debris. It also helps distribute the chemicals used to treat your water. Your pump is a critical part of your swimming pool and it’s important that it be properly installed by a licensed electrician.
Types of Pumps
There are three main types of pool pumps, which vary according to how quickly water is recirculated through them (number of revolutions per minute). Your swimming pool company should guide you on the best type and size for your pool.
Single-speed Pool Pump
As its name suggests, this type of pump only operates at full speed and maximum power. While it is your least expensive option, it uses more electricity, which drives up your operational costs. This type of pump tends to be noisier, and its filter wears out more quickly than other pool pump options.
Two-Speed Pool Pump
Because it operates on two speed levels, this type of pump is going to save you some money in your annual operating costs. It is also quieter than a single-speed pump. The trade off is your initial investment, as it costs about 30-40% more than a single-speed pump.
Variable-Speed Pool Pump
Because you can adjust your power ratings according to your needs, a variable-speed pump costs significantly less to operate. While it can cost up to three times as much as a single-speed pool pump, you will save up to 75% on the relative operational costs. By the second year of operation, most homeowners recoup enough energy savings to offset their initial equipment investment. Variable-speed pool pumps also offer the lowest noise level.
Pool Pump Timer Installation
To further regulate your pool operation, we can install a pool pump timer for you. These help regulate the run-time schedule, saving on maintenance and improving the overall operational efficiency of your swimming pool.
