Pool Pump Plumbers

Pool Pump Installation & Repair

Your pool is the centerpiece of comfort during hot summer days. Its heart is the pump, which keeps the water circulating. Without a pool pump, your pool’s water would turn cloudy because of a lack of circulation. Pool pumps also circulate chemicals through your pool, helping to kill bacteria and one of the most common causes of a green pool: algae.

Repairing or replacing a broken pool pump is important to the overall maintenance of your pool. A broken pool pump effectively prevents a pool's ability to remain ready for use. When you need pool pump repair or installation, it’s time to call the plumbing pros from Benjamin Franklin Plumbing.

Our pool pump professionals are ready to quickly come to your house and diagnose your pool pump issues or find the perfect one for your home. Call today at (419) 273-9616 for help.

Why Pool Pumps Matter

Pool pumps keep water circulating and create the force needed to send it through a filtration system. When a pool pump runs, it enables suction, sends water through the filter to keep it clear, and then returns it through another line. A pump and filtration system plays a crucial role in dispersing chemicals throughout your pool quickly, keeping the water from growing algae.

Common Issues You May Experience with Your Pool Pump

As mentioned above, when a pool pump has a problem, it’s as if the heart of your pool is not working properly. Pump issues should be immediately addressed to ensure your pool’s condition doesn’t worsen and need an expensive cleanup. A pool pump should be inspected if it isn’t provided the right amount of pressure, if it is making a loud noise, or if it is not turning on. Notably, many apparent problems with a pump are caused by another issue in your pool’s plumbing.

Common causes of pump issues include:

  • Clogged return or intake lines
  • A dirty filter
  • Plumbing leaks
  • An improperly sealed or tightened pump lid
  • A full pump basket
  • A full skimmer basket
  • A stuck pump impeller
  • An underpowered pump
  • Inadequate pool water level

If your pump is not working correctly, your local Benjamin Franklin Plumbing is ready to come to your home and diagnose the issue. If the problem is repairable, we’ll gladly fix your system. If your pump needs to be replaced, we’ll work with you to find an adequate replacement that considers your pool’s unique needs. If your pump is stalled, sucking air, or running dry, turn off the power to your system immediately. These issues can permanently break a pump.

Advantages of Replacing Your Old Pool Pump

After a while, the cost of maintaining an old pump will exceed the benefits of installing a new one. Additionally, modern pool pumps are quiet, efficient, and designed to run at lower speeds and use up to 90% less energy than their older counterparts. New pump models are so efficient that some state and local energy providers offer rebates to homeowners who install them!
