Pool Pump Maintenance in Scottsdale, AZ

Articles, Maintenance Tips

Your pool pump is an important part of your pool since it keeps your water fresh and clean. The pool pump pulls dirty water and sends it to the filter, and returns clean water to your pool for uninterrupted fun.

But a noisy, leaky or altogether broken pool pump can in Scottsdale, AZ disrupt this cycle—and a relaxing afternoon. Here is some advice on diagnosing and addressing five of the most common pool pump problems:

Problem: You see a large amount of air bubbles in your pump pot.

Solution: Identify where air is entering the system.

There are several ways air can get into your pump pot, including:

    The o-ring is not seated correctly or is damaged

    The pool water level is too low

    A fracture in the plumbing has caused a leak on the suction side of the pump.

    The skimmer basket is too full of debris.

If the pool water level is too low or the skimmer basket needs to be emptied, try adding water and removing the debris to see if that fixes the problem. If you can’t identify where the air is coming from and resolve the problem on your own, contact Admiral Pools for assistance.
