Summertime Pool Pump Check!
Updated: Dec 14, 2021
Summertime is right around the corner, which means your pool is about to start getting a lot more activity! Pool pumps can be a tricky thing to inspect if you don't know what to check.
That is why today, Sea Breeze Pools is providing you with the pool pump checklist so that you can have peace of mind that your pool system is pumping properly to keep your pool running well throughout these summer months.
1. Check the Pump's Power Cord and Plug for any Damages
First things first, you want to check the power source of your pool pump to make sure that it is in good working condition. If your power cord is frayed or damaged, it could cause a fire which would not only take your pool out of commission until you can get it serviced, but could also damage your home depending on the location of your pool pump/system.
2. Inspect Your Pool's Plumbing and Make Sure it is Leak Free
Next, you can check for leaks by looking for wet spots on the ground near your pool. Once you have done a sweep of the pool’s exterior, you should inspect the lining of your skimmer basket and other pool equipment parts to ensure they are all water-tight.
3. Clean or Replace Any Parts That Need it
After you have checked for leaks, you need to check your equipment. If your pool is a few years old, it might be time to clean or replace some parts of your pool system. Common parts that need to be replaced due to usage include impeller rings, impeller screws, motors, diffusers, gaskets and seals, and even your strainer basket.
