Pool pumps are essential for the proper functioning of any pool. It keeps a pool in working order by circulating water through the pool and filter. A pump is the heart of a pool’s circulation system and its main function is to pump water through the pool’s filter. It pulls water from a suction point in the pool and it pushes it through the pool’s filter, heater and chemical filtration system and then back into the pool through its return ports. This creates a continuous cleaning cycle, keeping a pool clean and functioning properly.

Using a pool pump alone will not clean a pool. It is essential to have a pool pump working in conjunction with a pool filter in order to maintain a clean swimming pool. It is also very important to choose the right type of filter to fit a particular pool’s needs. Sunward Pools offers sand and cartridge pool filters

Bigger is not always better when it comes to pool pumps. A pool pump that is too large can hinder filtration and damage the filter and/or heater. It is therefore very important to know the size of a pool before purchasing a pool pump. The pump size will be taken into account If there is additional equipment such as water features, solar panels, etc. installed. The more equipment installed the more powerful the pump needs to be.
