Above Ground Pool Pumps
The Job of Above Ground Swimming Pool Pumps
Your above ground pool pump is tasked with circulating the water. Your pool pump makes it possible to turn over the water to be cleaned and sanitized before reentering the pool, all with energy efficiency in tow.
Single, Dual-Speed and Variable Speed Pool Pumps
Pool Supply Unlimited carries a great selection of above ground swimming pool pumps from leading pool manufacturers like Hayward and Waterway, with pump speeds ranging from single, dual-speed and variable-speed. It's also not uncommon for pool owners to purchase an above ground pool filter pump system
, which comes with a pump and filter, rather than a standalone pump, it just depends on your needs!
Single-Speed Pool Pumps
Single-speed above ground pool pumps operate with a single motor at one speed. Single-speed pumps are not as popular as they once were due to newer pump efficiencies and are generally replaced with a more efficient pool pump like a dual-speed or variable-speed pool pump once the time comes to replace it.
Dual-Speed Pool Pumps
Operating at low and high speeds, dual-speed pumps offer more efficiency and versatility when compared to their single-speed counterpart. While the lower speed will use less energy, it will not turn over your pool's water as quickly as the high-speed setting. On the other hand, the high-speed setting will turn your water over more quickly but won't be as efficient as the low speed.
Despite these differences in efficiencies, the dual-speed option gives you the choice to pump your pool's water in multiple ways, which is an appealing attribute many pool owners appreciate.
Variable-Speed Pool Pumps
With the variable-speed pump you will enjoy the most efficient pump capable of saving you money and turning over your water quickly. While they do cost more upfront than single or dual-speed pumps, variable-speed above ground pool pumps certainly make up for it in the long run.
