Pool Pump Installation
Pool pumps are the heart of your pool system. They rush pool water through your main drain and skimmers and run it through your filter. It is also responsible for circulating clean water and chemicals evenly throughout your pool. The bottom line, it is vital for keeping your swimming pool in pristine condition.

As one of the most important components in your pool system, we will make sure you are receiving the latest cutting-edge technology to cut costs and maximize efficiency.
Why you should have a good pool pump.
Most quality pool pumps come at an expensive price, but it is for a good reason. They turn over your water hundreds of times a day filtering out debris and bacteria, spreading chemicals throughout your pool, and preventing stagnation. Without a pool pump, your pool would never be able to function properly. There are tons of brands of pool pumps, some of the ones that we work consistently with are Jandy, Pentair, and Haywards pumps.
Despite the amount of pool pump brands and models that exist, there are 3 main categories of pool pumps; single-speed pool pumps, two-speed pool pumps, and variable-speed pool pumps.
Single-speed pool pump
A single-speed pool pump is a self-explanatory traditional pump that has been installed in pools for several decades. When turned on, it will turn over your water consistently at the same speed until it is powered off. Though these pumps have been around for so many years, they are slightly outdated. Many people are attracted to the single-speed pool pump because of the initial price tag that it carries. They are much more inexpensive than the other two pool pumps, but the costs eventually catch up with the constant maintenance, operating costs, and inefficiency.
Bottom line, don’t let the initial price of the single-speed pool pump fool you. These pumps are easily one of the most expensive appliances in a home, costing some pool owners almost $2000 per year to operate!
Two-speed pool pump
A two-speed pool pump is a significant improvement from a single-speed pool pump. It has the ability to run on two speed options, high and low. Since you can change the speed of your pool pump, instead of it running at full speed 24/7, you can cut down operational costs significantly. Although the two-speed pool pump comes at a higher price than the single-speed pool pump, on average our customers experienced a 50-70% decrease in energy costs when they switched over.
If you are wondering when you should have your two-speed pool pump set on high or low, most people will run their pool pump 24/7 at low speed with a few exceptions. It is recommended that you turn your pump to the high setting when vacuuming, running a heater, or if you have heavy leaves & debris falling on the surface of your pool. This is meant to push the surface gunk into the skimmers.
Variable Speed pool pump
The immediate benefits that customers experience when installing a variable speed pump are being able to control everything through a digital interface, less noise & vibration, it stays cool longer, and a lower cost of operation. If this isn’t enough to make you want to purchase a variable speed pump, keep reading, there is more!
The variable speed pump utilizes the “permanent magnet motor,” the same motor design that is used in electric cars today. Through the easy-to-use interface, the variable speed pump allows users to set the exact flow rate for their swimming pool. When properly optimized, it will dramatically reduce the pool circulation friction which in turn makes your system run much more efficiently. The variable speed pump is the holy grail of all pool pumps, some studies show that they are 90% more efficient than standard one-speed pool pumps. If you are ready to make the investment, a variable speed pump will cut down maintenance costs and dramatically increase the efficiency of your swimming pool.
