Pump Filter

A pool pump is the most important tool for the upkeep and maintenance of any well-tended swimming pool. Since it plays a very crucial role in the maintenance of the pool, it is essential to install a pump of good quality. Remember, the less maintenance you are required to perform, the more fun and enjoyment of swimming you will have.

Sometimes it is confusing to select a pool pump because of the different range and quality that are competitively priced and manufactured in the market. It is the lack of proper knowledge about which pump is required for their pool that makes people so anxious about what decision to take.

Here are some tips that can be helpful for those who want to install a pool pump themselves:

1. All pumps are not equally created. They vary in shape, size and capacities. Only a pump of fairly good capacity can efficiently circulate the water and keep the debris away. So it is advisable to keep an eye out for the different quality available as all manufacturers have a tendency to reduce the costs and component to a minimum in order to sell their product over and above their competitors.

2. To check out the capacity of a pump, divide the pools volume by 4 and then divide the result by 60,000 liters. Note that 60,000/4 = 15,000/60 = 250 is the net minimum number of quantity (in liters) which the pump will be needed to generate in a minute.

3. Compare the flow rates for a given set of pressure. For example, lets say 12 meters. Ask the seller for the quantity for each pump at that point of pressure. Are you still finding the pressure at 250 l/min? Then, opt for a size higher than that or switch over to another pool pump.

4. Pool pumps are available in varying sizes and they require different sets of energy levels. The one which gives 250 l/m will require about 750 to 1000 watt. The one which gives 350 l/m would require about 1200 to 1500 watt.

5. The cheaper pumps generally circulate more water in similar quantity just as the more costlier ones do. But a cheaper pump creates more noise in its functioning. So it is not advisable to opt for the cheaper pool pump after careful consideration.

Pumps are supposed to be installed outside. But sometimes, several pool pumps come with conditions in the warranty period which require the pump to have adequate protection. Therefore, it is really a good idea to install the filter, pump and motors in a basement or in a garden shed or a garage. All equipments will last long if a good quality pump is installed with utmost care.

With these tips, you can now decide which pool pump you should opt for.

Would like to know why my car want start after replacing fuel pump,filter and fuel relay?

I have a 1987 Buick Lesabre Custom.I replaced the fuel pump,fuel filter,and fuel relay.After I finish installing all the parts I turned the ignition switch and my car started right up.I did this job Sunday October 22,2006.Since then my car has not been able to start up and the battery keeps running down.Can some one tell me why I am not able to start my car or why the battery keeps running down,The car has a full tank of gas?Never did lose any gas from changing out the fuel filter or fuel pump.I have done what the answers that the guys gave me on this site and My father installed all the parts for me on my car he retired as a ASE Master Mechanic 48yrs as a mechanice and in the business.I went back and check the wiring for the fuel pump and it installed correctly and I changed out the fuel relays cause they are 20 yrs old.I have done everything that the guys here suggested that I do and the car still want start.Anymore suggestion?

If you checked the wiring and you have voltage to the pump-and its not running -its a bad pump.If it is running-check the pressure relief valve.
