Swimming Pool & Spa Pumps
pool pump is used to circulate the water in a pool. Known as the heart of your
swimming pool or spa, your pool water pump plays a vital role in the health of
your pool. Pools cannot function without them and should not run on pumps that
need replacing. Whether you need a replacement pool pump or this is your first
time purchasing a pool pump, we’ve got just what you’re looking for.

the pool pump that fits your needs but the pool supplies
your pool even more enjoyable. We carry an incredible selection of pool filters

Types of Pool
There are three types of
swimming pool pumps for you to choose from; single-speed, dual-speed, and
variable-speed pumps. Each type is available in above ground or inground
Single-speed pumps operate
with a motor spinning at one speed. When replacing a single-speed pool water
pump, it’s best to upgrade to a more efficient pool pump, at least a dual-speed
or variable-speed pump. If you’d like to stick with a single-speed pump, be
sure their use hasn’t been banned in your region or state, as they have in
Arizona and California.
Dual-speed pool pumps
operate at two speeds: low and high. The lower speed uses less energy, but may
not turn over your water as efficiently. The high speed, on the other hand,
will turn over your water more quickly but will resemble the speed of a
single-speed pool pump.
Today, variable-speed pool
pumps are among the most popular swimming pool pumps, with many states,
counties, and municipalities requiring variable speed pumps in place of older
pumps. Though they are more expensive up front, they are much more efficient
than other types of pool pumps, consuming less power and turning pool water
over more efficiently than single or dual-speed pumps. Variable-speed pumps can cut energy costs up to 90% and save you hundreds on your utility bill!
We recommend Waterway or Pentair variable pumps. The IntelliFlo
was the first of its kind and is still widely recommended and sold today.
