Protect Your Pool Pump from These 3 Common Types of Damage

As a pool owner, you know how important it is to keep your pool pump in good working condition. After all, your pool pump is responsible for circulating the water in your pool and keeping it clean. But did you know that three main types of damage can occur to your pool pump? This blog post will look at those three types of damage and what you can do to avoid them.

Type #1: Mechanical Damage

Mechanical damage is the first type of damage that can occur to your pool pump. This damage can be caused by several things, including loose bolts, worn-out gaskets, or cracked housing. Check your pool pump regularly for loose bolts or worn-out gaskets. You should also check the housing for any cracks or breaks. If you find issues, address them immediately. 

Type #2: Electrical Damage

Electrical damage is the second type of damage that can occur to your pool pump. A power surge or lightning strike usually causes this type of damage. Use a surge protector with your pool pump to avoid a power surge. Additionally, if there is a chance of lightning in the area, be sure to unplug your pool pump until the storm has passed.

Type #3: Chemical Damage

Chemical damage is the third and final type of damage that can occur to your pool pump. This type of damage is caused by using improper chemicals in your pool or by not properly maintaining the pH balance in your pool water. Use approved chemicals and test the pH levels in your pool water regularly. 

Now that you know the three main types of damage that can occur to your pool pump, you can help extend its life and keep it running smoothly for years to come. Be sure to regularly check for loose bolts or worn-out gaskets, use a surge protector, and adequately maintain the pH levels in your pool water to help avoid damage to your pool pump.
