Best Pool Pumps: The Details

Owning a pool is one of lifes great milestones. Youve worked hard to get to where youre at, and you want to treat you and your family to a good life. You can while away hours on your inflatable deck chair, sipping on beer, and listening to your kids have the time of their lives. Sounds perfect, doesnt it? Unfortunately, reality of owning a pool can be quite different if you dont have the right equipment. A high-quality Pool Pump is probably the most important piece of kit you can invest in to keep your dream alive. Without a high-quality pump, youre going to end up with a green pool that is full of debris. Not only will that make the pool unpleasant, but it can also actually be pretty dangerous. So, you owe it to yourself to invest wisely. Of course, there is a temptation to go with the cheap option, but this can often end up costing you money in the long run when you have to replace filters and get a pump fix. So, I recommend investing a little bit more money and buying a pool Pump that can circulate water in your pool efficiently and consistently. At the bottom of this article is the Buying Guide section that will explain how we choose the 12 Best Pool Pumps, and also a few key phrases that youll come across in your search. The first pump on our list is Intex Krystal Clear Sand Filter Pump. It is actually designed to be used with Intex swimming pools but will work as an excellent upgrade for pretty much any above ground pool. A pool is a luxury item, but it can quickly turn into a nightmare if your Filter isnt working correctly. You can end up with a pool full of debris, tiring maintenance regime, and a huge electricity bill at the end of it. Investing in this Filter will help you avoid all of that. The first thing that we love about this product is the fact that it uses sand as a filtration agent. It provides excellent water filtration and requires much less maintenance than cheaper cartridge filters. In fact, you should only need to change sand once every five years. It has a 6-function control valve that allows you to filter, backwash and rinse, recirculate, drain, and close the system. While it might only have one speed, this gives you an excellent amount of control and works with a 24-hour timer to make this pump hassle-free. It has a Flow rate of around 40gpm, but it doesnt have variable settings so it is not the most energy efficient Pool Pump. However, it is going to be damn sight more efficient than a cheap cartridge pump and you should be able to make back extra money within a few years. Be sure to combine this with cool above ground swimming pools from our list. Hayward is a pretty well-know brand in the world of Pool Pumps.

Are All Motors Created Equal?

The picture below is Capacitor Start electric MOTOR, made by AO Smith and others, and used to power centrifugal impellers on Pool Pumps. Capacitor-Start motors use store power to give MOTOR windings additional power, to start rotor turning. When this power is applied to coils of wound copper that surround the rotor, it begins to rotate within the stator. Rotor is alternately repel and attract, and this quickly ramps up rotor revolutions to over 3400 RPM. All of the items at rear of MOTOR are replaceable, with the Capacitor being most often replaced MOTOR part. Inside MOTOR, MOTOR bearings can be replaced if they begin to squeal, although if MOTOR is over 5 years old, it may be better to replace MOTOR, in my opinion. Electrical motors are recyclable, and there is some scrap value to copper windings, if you want to strip them out.

First thing first

Before we are able to conclude whether 1. 5 horsepower is the same as 1. 0 horsepower, you must first analyze other specs on your motor. The essential piece of information you need to look for is called Service Factor. Sometimes manufacturers do not lay out this information clearly, so you may need to search for it. SF measures overload capacity built in motor. You do necessarily need to know what SF means for operation of a motor, as well as what it actually does SF serves as a multiplier to your horsepower which indicates the amount of additional load your motor can handle.

Full rated vs. Uprated

Up-rat and Full-rat are terms which are used in order to describe motor's Service Factor. Its Service Factor is gives a numeric value which determines THP, or total horsepower, of a motor. This particular rating system started in the mid-20 century when Service Factor was used in order to rate home water systems. In many areas, older electrical systems had low voltage conditions and were somewhat unreliable. NEMA standards take these low voltage conditions into consideration and make service factors for these motors higher. As the pool industry started to progress, NEMA started to apply these same standards to swimming pool pumps. The pool market eventually end up with low Service Factor, referred to as up-rate, and high Service Factor, referred to as full-rate, motors. The motor's total horsepower is calculated with a formula that is presented as follow: Horsepower x Service Factor = total Horsepower following examples were taken from a few common Pool pump motors and will help to better illustrate this formula. B2847 and SQ1102 are shown as full rate motors. B2853 and USQ1102 are shown as up rate motors. Both up and full rate listings are based strictly on the Service Factor of motor. According to NEMA, in order for HP motor to be considered Full-rate, its Service Factor must be equal to or higher than the list Full rate Service Factor. A motor is considered to be up-rate if it has a Service Factor that is lower than the list Full-rate Service Factor. The chart below demonstrates how full-rate service factors are not necessarily the same for all horsepower motors. Let's take a look at a few Full-rate Service Factor motors. Whats important to understand here, is that total horsepower is the most crucial element. When you replace your motor, you should determine total horsepower by checking both Service Factor and rat horse power together. A motor that has full-rate and lower horsepower but higher Service Factor may be just as powerful as a motor that has up-rate and lower service rate. If you replace your motor with one that has lower total horsepower than the original, then you may have to deal with overheating and filtration that is not as efficient. In same way, if you replace your motor with one that has higher total horsepower than the original, you will risk overworking your filtration system because the motor will try to pump more water than your system was actually designed for. It is much easier to find the best motor when you match total horsepower to the original motors ' total horsepower. We here are Backyard Pool Superstore always recommend replacing your motor with exactly the same motor that you had. This makes sure that the motor will fit correctly and work properly with impeller.

Pool Pump Anatomy

OK, heres where it gets bit tricky, Stay with me. Every Pool system has Total Resistance that Pump must overcome. Water has to be pulled and pushed through pipes that bend and twist and its force through impellers and filters, squeezed through heaters and Valves, as well as lifted vertically, from water level to pump level. Amount of lift, and all of pipes, fittings and equipment Add-up to Total Resistance, measure in Feet of Head. A simple pool with one skimmer and no heater has a fairly low resistance level, in the 15-20 ft / hd range. Add another skimmer, heater and maybe spa and more complex Pools can be much higher, in the 45-60 ft / hd range. Most inground pools probably fall in the 25-45 ft / hd range. Total Resistance is made up of all pipe lengths, turns of pipe, and all of the equipment that pump must pull and push water through. Resistance is measure on feet of head. To calculate system resistance, add together these two sums: Multiply clean Filter pressure by 2. 31 to measure Resistance after Pump Multiply Pump vacuum by 1. 13 to measure Resistance before Pump Add two together to compute Total Resistance in system. Now, most pool owners do have vacuum gauge instal before pump. If you can get of vacuum gauge, unscrew the front Pump drain plug, and thread vacuum gauge in its place. Turn the pump on and take your reading. In absence of vacuum gauge, you can estimate suction side vacuum to be something close to 1 / 3 of pressure side reading. For example, if your filter pressure is x 2. 31 = 30, assume that vacuum reading would equate to 10 ft. Of head. Total Resistance = 40 ft. Of Head. Another way to calculate suction side resistance, in the absence of vacuum gauge, is to add up all bits of pipe and Valves before pump. For each 1. 5 in. Skimmer or main drain, Add 2 ft. Of head, or 1 ft., If piping is 2 in. Diameter. For each 10 Feet of 1. 5 in. Pipe use, Add 1 ft. Of head, or. 5 ft. For each 10 foot run of 2 in. Pipe. For each 90 degree fitting or valve between Pool and Pump, Add 1 ft., Or 0. 5 ft. For 2 in. Pipe. To check valve instal before pump, Add 2 ft. Of Head. To roughly calculate the amount of resistance, measure in Feet of Head, that your Pump must overcome, heres rough approximation method that can be used Add up all of these resistances to find Total Resistance in your system.
