Pool Pump Repair
How to Know if Your Pool Pump is Not Working
A malfunctioning pool pump can be an absolute headache.
Fighting the heat in a fresh water heaven in your own backyard is a phenomenal opportunity. Not to mention that staying in as long as you want when you want is a luxury that many only dream of having. It's easy to take this opportunity for granted until you walk out one day and hear growling noises or water spraying from the pump and motor.
There are several ways to determine if the pool pump is not working. Following are some ways to determine if the pool pump is the culprit.

Loss of Suction of the Pool Pump
Swimming pool pumps are designed to draw in water and pump it through the filter and then return the water to the pool free of debris. Your filter should be equipped with a pressure guage which can be used to determine if the water is moving through the system correctly. If the baseline on the pressure gauge is off, you may have either a clogged pump or the pump motor is worn out.
Water is Leaking Around Pool Pump
The connections to the pool pump all have seals to maintain pressure, these seals will fail over time and may show water dripping out of the connections or pump strainer basket. More often than not, water in these areas will indicate a seal that has failed. Whatever the cause, you need to have the pump repaired before the problem becomes worse, requiring a new pump or motor installation.
Does Your Pool Pump Motor Keep Shutting Off?
Modern variable speed pumps are designed to shut off when problems are detected. If the motor shuts down after a short time, it can be an issue of over-heating or a clog. This is a problem that needs to be corrected and addressed as soon as it is noticed, since it can only get worse requiring more parts and affecting the rest of the swimming pool equipment.
A Noisy Swimming Pool Pump
Nobody, especially your neighbors, wants to hear whining or grinding coming from your pool pump. Your pool pump should run quietly, noises that are out of character are the number one indication of the need for swimming pool pump repair or replacement.

Sucking Air Into Your Pool System
Fresh clean air is good, but not when it is being sent through your pool system. If you are getting excessive bubblers in the strainer basket or bubbles injected into the pool, this is a good indication that something is leaking or that a seal has failed (see above)
Off Color, Green, or Murky Water
Your pool should always have clean clear water. Green or murky water is an easy indication that something is awry with the swimming pool pump and filtration system. No more exploration need, call our pool service!
