Tips in Cleaning a Pool Pump

by John Smith Proffesional Manager

One of the signs of a malfunctioned pump is green swimming pool water due to dirt accumulation and thriving algae. A pool pump's primary purpose is to drive water through the system's filtration unit to ensure that the water is safe and clean for use. It is important to note that without a pump, a swimming pool cannot function well. If the pool pump malfunctions, then the swimming pool will not be ideal for any functions. For this reason, you should maintain and clean your pool pump to keep it in good condition. Here are a few tips to consider when cleaning your pool pumps Auckland.

Use a Vacuum Hose to Remove Excess Air

Air build-up is a normal phenomenon in most pumps, especially in the filters and baskets. However, air bubbles can clog the pump, causing it to malfunction. You can use a vacuum hose to flush out these air bubbles and unclog the pump, even in the most intricate parts.

Remove and Clean the Filter Cartridge

Your pump's filter cartridge is an essential component that needs regular maintenance. It is for this reason that you should clean it once every 2-3 months of continuous use. To clean it, begin by removing the clamps while holding the filter before releasing it. Afterward, inspect it for any damages, and then wash it using a spray nozzle while focusing on the area between the pleats. Finally, thoroughly rinse the entire cartridge before carefully returning it to its rightful place.

Remove and Clean the Impeller

It would help if you also considered cleaning the pump's impeller to eliminate any debris, clogs, and dirt that may be causing the pump to malfunction. Cleaning the impeller is very easy. You can use a bent wire, a coat hanger, or even your fingers to remove the debris.
