Pumps Help Keep Your Swimming Pools in Tip Top Condition

August 11, 2016

Swimming pool pumps are a potent force within a surprisingly intricate water-processing chain. They suck water from the swimming pool, push it through a series of state-of-the-art filters, and return the now scrubbed fluid back to the pool. Filtered by this circulating action, the water is next heated and chemically conditioned, thus proving the pump is a central part of a multi-stage process, one that guarantees a fresh flow of sparkling clean pool water.

Recirculated Pool Water Absolves Pollutants

The sound of the gently humming swimming pool pump reinforces a subconscious feeling of peace, for the user knows that the water is being recirculated and conditioned. Stagnancy is not a possibility when this cycle is enforced, so no bacteria can find its way into the swimming pool. In essence, the pump is acting as a waste-cleansing device, an appliance that sieves nasty pollutants while recirculating every drop of water over an 8-to-12 hour period of time.

Orchestrating the Chemical and Mechanical Magic

The machinery also incorporates a powerful active chemical component, for a purely recirculatory mechanism isn't enough to defeat stubborn contaminants. The filters naturally stop suspended dirt and filth, but this layered physical construct doesn't account for bacterial growths and other microbial artifacts, the germy filth that could be swallowed by a child. Chemical conditioners assume this crucially important role. They kill germs, floating algae, and growths that prosper in the warm water.

The Dutiful Water-Scrubbers of Pool Life

It's essential that pumps in swimming pools are selected according to their volumetric capabilities. The self-priming appliance should be endowed with enough raw torque to transfer all water through the filtration stage. This absolute cycling capacity is a central part of the design, for it governs the impellers aptitude for getting every last drop of questionable water through the filtration assembly. After all, the most powerful sanitizing agent in the world is next to useless if the pumping mechanism isn't pulling all of the pool water through the filters. That same powerful impeller also distributes chlorine, algae-specific chemical eradicators, and other conditioners to every edge of the swimming pool.

Poor suction energy will cause a number of detrimental effects to materialize within the swimming pool. Cavitation damage to the impeller occurs when the pump is sized incorrectly. Bubbles burst with some force inside the pump volute, thus causing the mechanism to malfunction. Size the pump correctly and ensure it can circulate the entire volume of the pool at least once a day.
