Points To Consider When Buying A Pool Pump

An inground pool pump serves as the heart of your pool system. Aside from keeping your pool free from germs, it also ensures clearer water that’s algae-free. It works with your pool filter by circulating water and making sure chemicals and chlorine aren’t concentrated in one area. Investing in a high quality pool pump should keep your pool functioning like new. It lets you enjoy your pool without worrying about maintenance.

So what I’m telling you is that it’s so efficient it pays for itself in a short time, contributes to its own longevity, and can adapt to changes while still achieving minimum power use.

For instance, an owner a pool that holds 12,970 gallons of water decides that he wants to circulate his pool every six hours. To compute, divide the total gallons of water by six. That would be equivalent to 2,162 gallons per hour to circulate. Then divide that figure by 60 (the number of minutes in an hour) to find the gallons per minute. In this example, the flow rate of about 36 gpm. In this example, the owner must purchase a pump with 36 gpm. If you’re in doubt, you can contact your contractor to do the computation and recommend the best pool pump for you.

Having said this, there are a lot of other products you can sell online and on eBay where you will have a lot less competition. I found one supplier who was selling these Palmetto Pool Service and generators, and I was making a lot of money per each item. Around $50 profit. Not bad per sale. But this I was able to do about 3 or 4 months after I purchased their database. Not because of their database, but because I did not know how to research those hot popular niche items. If you do not know how, none of the wholesalers are going to help you.

Guest Manual – This is a wonderful way to add that extra special touch for your renters. The manual can include menus from local restaurants, information on the house such as how to adjust the thermostat, what to do and not to do when it comes to cleaning, etc. Any community information is great too. Also include contact info for area emergency systems and any other important numbers. Be sure to prominently display the WiFi Code if there is one.

Basically a pump “pushes” water through the piping and filters then back into the pool via the inlet pipes. While it doesn’t seem like it, water is affected by the friction. Too many bends, undersized piping or the wrong filter can significantly add to the work a pump has to do, and can through overwork, shorten its life. In a simple example, if the flow rate through your pump and pipes were to be reduced by 50%, then the back pressure on the pump will be cut to only 25%, that is a big saving on work and power draw.

Pool cleaners and pool pumps are must-haves for every swimming pool system. Both come in various types and models to fit different swim pool sizes and capacity.
