The Age Of A Pool Pump Motor Matters
An original high-quality and well-maintained pool pump motor can last anywhere from seven to twelve years. If the motor has not been periodically serviced, then chances are you can expect the overall motor to completely fail sooner than later.
If your pump is getting old - and experiencing frequent mechanical issues, then it might be time to purchase a new unit. Modern pool motor pumps not only last longer but are also more energy-efficient, eco-friendly, and sustainable.
What are other Threats are there to Pool Pump Motors Working Effectively?
● Excessive Heat: Adequate ventilation is crucial for an operational motor. A pool pump motor needs clean, continuous air circulating - and typically, motors will operate hotter at higher altitudes. Adding a thermal overload protector will improve the motor's ventilation system.
● Incorrect initial installation: Before operating the pool motor for the very first time, an experienced pool pump motor technician should check and confirm that the line voltage, frequency, and phase settings all match and correspond to the unit's voltage specifications as shown in the motor's official product documentation.
Pool pump motors are positioned on the ‘dry end’ of the pool water pumping unit, and their key function is to convert electrical energy into mechanical energy. A motor’s main mission is to power the pump’s impeller, which in turn will move the pool water into and throughout the pump.
