Pool Pump Motors
At the heart of all pool pump motors lies electromagnetic technology, which is a system that requires an electrical winding sub-system - or a stator, and a shaft-mounted electrical winding sub-system - called a rotor.
What Exactly Does A Pool Pump Motor Do?
A pool pump motor is a device that will monitor and circulate your swimming pool’s water supply and overall circulation. It is the key component that will maintain the water health and pristine condition suitable for swimming.
The pool pump motor pulls water from the pool and directs it towards the water processing system for filtration, heating, and chlorination treatment. The pool pump motor will then deliver the processed water back to the pool, available for everyone to enjoy.
What Are The Key Components Of A Pool Pump Motor?
The three key components that make a pool pump motor work are the:
- Impeller, and
The motor begins the whole water movement process by rotating the impeller, which absorbs the water from the pool, and then thrusts it systematically towards the filter.
The Main Two Types Of Pool Pump Motors
There are two main types of pool pump motors:
- Single-speed, and
As the name implies, single-speed pool motors have just one speed when operational. Single-speed pool motors are considered simple, basic units that service small to medium-sized pools only.
Dual-speed pool pump motors use less power, cost less to run, and have an extended motor lifespan when compared to single-speed pool motors. Dual motors have high and low settings, and the single-speed pool motor is considered more advanced.
Dual-speed pool pump motors are also suitable for standard pools but can utilize its high-speed capability to tend to more intricate and larger pools and outdoor water features.
