How to Tell When You Need Pool Pump Repairs

Here are Pool Assist, we provide pool pump repair parts and our technicians have extensive experience in repairing domestic and commercial pool pumps. As a result of our experience, we get asked a lot of questions about pool equipment and a lot of our customers want to know when they need to get they’re pool pump repaired. Today, we’re sharing some of the tell-tale signs that it’s time to get your technician in to take a look at your pump!

 

Potential issues with your pump

There a lot of signs that could indicate that there’s an issue with your pump. One of the most obvious issues that you should have investigated straight away is if you’re noticing electrical problems, such as power tripping out. This could be due to issues such as water entry or condensation in the pump motor. Water leaks can be a sign of issues such as a broken pump seal, damaged mechanical seal or faulty o-ring and need to be looked at by a technician.

 

If you notice that your pump is sucking in air, your technician will definitely need to take a look. This could be the result of issues such as a break in the plumbing or an o-ring might be pinched or broken. Strange noises such as screeching or grinding also need to be investigated – it could be due to something simple such as old bearings or something more complicated such as cavitation.

 

Repair vs replacement

In many cases, a pool technician will be able to fix your pool pump relatively easily so you can avoid expensive replacements. The important thing is to get the issue fixed as quickly as possible to avoid further damage to the pump. When it comes to issues such as defective bearings or a clogged impeller, these can be fixed. However, there may come a time when a replacement is necessary. If you have an old pool pump which is continually getting repairs, or if repairs are going to be very costly, it may be better to consider a replacement.

 

If you’re not sure whether you should opt for repairs or a replacement, simply speak to your pool technician. They’ll be able to give you honest advice and also let you know which pump would be best should you require a full replacement
