Pool pumps are designed to circulate water through your filtering system while also sanitizing and mixing the chemicals necessary to keep a pool clean. A properly fitted pool pump is necessary.
Horse power isn’t as important as you think when it comes to pool pumps. A more efficient pump is one that is correctly sized for your pool and will curb the chance of energy waste and excessive wear on your other equipment.
Your first step in choosing pool pump supplies is to size your pool by first calculating the volume of water in your pool (also known as the average depth). Once you have calculated this and know the volume of water in your pool, you need to calculate the flow rate, head, and turnover required to process the water in the number of hours you want. Flow Rate is the volume of water that travels through the pool pump during a period of time. It is measured in GPM. Head refers to the amount of resistance water experiences as it is passed through the pipes and to the pump, such as bends in the pipes and the water filter all create resistance to water flow. Every piece of equipment that is connected to your pool’s circulation and filtration creates resistance to water flowing through to the pump and must be taken into consideration. This includes heaters and cleaners, filters and pipes. Some items such as your filter and other pool supplies will note their resistance or you can contact their manufacturer to find out. Our experts at Miami Pumps can help you determined your Flow Rate and Head so that you fit your pool with the proper pool pump in Miami.
