Signs You Need to Replace Your Pool Pump Motor
Swimming pool pumps are the heart of your swimming pool, pumping
and circulating water in and out of your pool’s sanitation, filtration and
heating systems before re-entering the pool. Often,
pool owners neglect maintenance on their pool pump and when they do break down,
replacing them can be a costly exercise. When your pool pump doesn’t
work correctly, it can wreak havoc on the cleanliness and overall condition of
your swimming pool. If you’re noticing more algae or dirtier water than usual,
you may need to look into repairing or replacing your pool pump.
How can you tell if the pool pump’s motor is the problem?
These are the most common issues to look for when determining if you need to
replace your pool pump motor.
Pool pump motors' lifespan can vary. If your
motor is nearing the end of it's life expectancy, its old age could be reason enough
to replace it.
Strange Noises (Or No Noise at All)
A properly running pool pump should produce a soft to medium
hum that’s audible but not completely deafening or distracting. If your motor
is making no noise at all, it could be dead and probably needs replacing. If on
the other hand, your pool pump is making strange humming, grinding, screeching,
clanking, popping, or clicking noises, your motor may be to blame.
Each noise can generally be narrowed down to the motor component
responsible. For instance, a strange humming sound might indicate that the
capacitor has failed, whereas popping and clicking could indicate an electrical
failure within the pool pump motor. Screeching can often be traced to motor
bearings, and grinding means those bearings are getting too worn down to keep
the motor running. The best way to track the source of the noise is to keep
your pool pump housing open so you can listen closely to what’s happening when
the motor is running.
