Water Filtration Solution For In Ground

Common In Ground Pool Size

A pool's water capacity in gallons depends on its total area and its average depth. A 12-by-24-foot rectangular pool with an average depth of 5 feet will hold approximately 10,800 gallons of water. A 16-by-32-foot pool with the same depth will hold about 19,200 gallons, and a 20-by-40-foot pool will hold 30,000 gallons.

How to Choose the SPA Filtration System?
Types Of Hot Tub Filtration SystemsPressure Side FiltersSuction Side FiltersPressure Vs Suction FiltersWhat Does A SPA Filter Do?A SPA filter has one job: to remove debris and impurities in the water.The ideal chemistry of the water is dependent on the proper levels of pH, total alkalinity (TA), calcium hardness (CH), and a sanitizer such as chlorine or bromine.Chlorine/bromine is used to disinfect and kill viruses, bacteria, and pathogens in the water. But that’s all these chemicals do. The bad stuff is killed off, but now you have dead bad stuff in the water.To remove these impurities, the tub needs to have a filtration system. As tub water is sucked in by the pump, it’s sent through the hot tub filter. It’s here where the dead viruses and bacteria collect. The filter then allows clean water to pass through it, cycling it back into the spa.Types Of SPA FiltersCartridge FiltersCeramic FiltersSand FiltersDiatomaceous Earth (DE) FiltersSPA Filter System CirculationStandard Jet PumpsCirculation Pumps

Once you have your pool’s volume, divide it by eight to determine the number of gallons per hour (GPH) that need to be pumped through the filter.

But instead of GPH, most pool pumps go by gallons per minute. To get that figure, divide the GPH by 60 to calculate how many gallons per minute (GPM) need to be pumped for full turnover.

So your formulae will be:

It won’t be as accurate as using a calculator or doing the math, but you can also get an idea of your pool’s volume here:

How to Select the Best Pool Pump?
Once you have all the numbers, you can find the size of pump that will accommodate the GPM required for your pool and turn over the pool’s water in one eight-hour period. If you have to choose one that pumps a little more than necessary, that won’t cause any problems. Just don’t go below the required GPM, and you’ll be fine.Contact Us For Solutions
Pool Pump Types
Since they were first invented, pool pumps have come a long way, and have evolved from just one to three types on the market.

Single-Speed Pumps

The original of the three, the single-speed refers to the fact that the motor spins the impeller at only one speed according to the horsepower of the motor.

If you are replacing a single-speed pool pump, we recommend you upgrade to at least a dual-speed or better. They’re more efficient, and they turn the pool water over more quickly.

But there’s something else to be aware of. Some states, such as Arizona and California, prohibit the installation of new single-speed pool pumps.

Dual-Speed Pumps

As the name implies, these pumps have two speeds: low and high. The high speed equates to that of a single-speed pump. The lower speed uses less energy, but may not be as efficient at water turnover. This will depend on your pool’s volume.

Variable-Speed Pumps

Yes, these pumps are more expensive than single- or dual-speed pumps, and rightfully so. This where that long-term investment in your pool comes in.

Instead of an induction motor like the other types have, a variable speed pool pump uses a permanent magnet motor, the kind used in electric cars. A magnet motor creates less friction than an induction motor. Less motor friction equals higher efficiency.

Variable-speed pumps also consume less power and turn the water over more quickly. They also run at lower revolutions per minute (RPM) than single- and dual-speed pumps, so they’re quieter. You may even get a utility rebate when you buy one.

Pool Pump Troubleshooting
It’d be great if your pump just ran forever and never encountered any problems, right? Heck, it’d be great if everything worked that way.But the time will come when your pump acts up, and you’ll need to fix it. Knowing some of the most common pump problems will help you deal with them when they occur.

The Pump Is Leaking

The most common causes for pool pump leaks include a bad impeller housing O-ring, bad shaft seal, bad thread sealant, and shrunken threads on the discharge pipe.

In most cases, these parts can be purchased and replaced rather easily at a fraction of the cost of calling a pro. Determine which part is leaking, take the system apart, replace it, and you will be back up and running in no time.

The Pump Fails to Pull Water

When water isn’t being pulled in to the pump, it can’t reach the filter and pass through the system properly. The first thing to look for is a clog in the system.

First, check the skimmer and the pump baskets to make sure they’re not clogged. Next, check the impeller for debris impeding its movement. Open up the pump and clear away any debris.

Another potential cause can be an air leak in the suction line. Since air has less mass than water, the pump will suck in air instead of water. Check the lines for leaks and patch up any you find.

The Motor Won’t Start

The first thing to check is the breaker to make sure it hasn’t been tripped. If the breaker is on, but the pump still won’t turn on, there’s likely an electrical problem, and you may have to replace the motor.

Note: If you’re not comfortable working with electrical systems, this may be an instance where calling in a pro is the best choice.

The Motor Spontaneously Turns Off

If this happens, the motor is most likely overheated. Check the pump’s air vents to make sure nothing is obstructing air flow. If it continues to happen, you may want to install something to shade the pump, if possible.

If the problem persists, it could be an electrical issue, and you may want to call in a pro, unless you’re an electrician.

The Pump Motor is Making Noise

All pump motors will make some noise. But if your pump is making a racket that sounds different from when it’s running normally, you could have a problem.

If it’s just vibration, placing the pump on a rubber pad may do the trick. But if it’s a low, growling sound, the problem could be cavitation, which means the pump isn’t getting enough water, and is taking in air.
