Swimming Pool Pumps Gold Coast QLD

Pool pumps Gold Coast maintain the cleanliness and freshness of your aquatic facility’s water by keeping it free from debris, algae, insects, and other contaminants. 

The most crucial component of a working pool is the pump. It circulates the water and chemicals, allowing the water to pass through a filter (typically a sand or cartridge type). This movement distributes the chemicals evenly throughout your aquatic facility so they don’t stagnate. Consequently, your swimming pool water becomes immaculately clean and pristine the entire year. 

Pool pumps Gold Coast provide superior suction to filter and push water out through extra equipment, such as pool heaters. 

The pump’s three main parts include:

  • Motor: The motor primarily powers the pump, which circulates water throughout the pool. Your motor also helps evenly distribute cleaning agents and heat throughout your aquatic facility. 
  • Impeller: The impeller’s rapid spinning movement increases pressure and drives water through the pump and your aquatic facility’s circulation system. 

Hair and lint trap: Also known as the pump strainer basket or pump filter basket, this component collects debris, including hair, lint, leaves, and insects. The hair and lint trap stops these contaminants from entering your pump and filtration system, preventing clogging and damage. It also extends the lifespan of your pump and ensures a steady flow of water throughout the system.

Types of Pool Pumps

You can choose from three types of swimming pool pumps Gold Coast QLD based on the speeds they generate:

  • Single-speed pump: Older pumps featured impellers that operated at a single speed. Newer varieties of single-speed pumps are available in stores across Australia. These versions are the cheapest you can purchase. If you decide to upgrade your pump, manufacturers typically recommend purchasing a multiple- or variable-speed variety.
  • Multiple-speed pump: This type of pump operates at different, fixed, and preset speeds (typically low and high). Depending on your aquatic facility’s size and filtration requirements, you can change speeds at the push of a button. Whenever your multiple-speed pump operates at high speed, the pace resembles its single-speed counterpart’s. 
  • Variable-speed pump: If you prefer specific speed settings for your aquatic facility, the variable-speed pump is right up your alley. You can operate your pump at a speed to your liking. Alternatively, some versions adjust the speed automatically. 

The variable speed feature makes this pool pump the most expensive in Australia. However, it’s the most energy-saving version among the three types. Since it uses less power than its single-speed and multiple-speed counterparts, it helps lower your utility bill by as much as 90% and save money.

Things to Consider When Buying A Pool Pump

Here are several factors to consider when buying a pool pump:

  • Pool size: You must determine the number of litres of water your aquatic facility can hold so you can compute its flow rate per hour. Afterwards, you can finalise the type of pool pumps Gold Coast for your aquatic facility. 
  • Noise: Operating a pump during off-peak hours is optimal because it minimises your utility bill. However, ensure your pump works with minimum noise so it doesn’t make your neighbours complain.  
  • Speed: If you prefer energy-efficient options, pumps that run at multiple or variable speeds are suitable.
  • Power: Bigger pumps don’t automatically mean they’re better than their smaller counterparts. Determine your aquatic facility’s maximum flow rate and avoid exceeding it. This will help prevent costly equipment issues down the track. 
  • Cost: It’s important to determine whether your prospective pool pump’s actual price fits your budget. However, you should also consider whether purchasing the wrong size or a substandard one will cost you more money in the future. Sometimes, expensive pumps can save you more money. It’s all about doing your research beforehand. 
  • Convenience: Pumps equipped with controllers and timers are more convenient than those without any. You don’t have to turn your system on and off manually daily, and these state-of-the-art pumps also minimise your electricity bills.
