If you have a pump on your pool that is showing any of the following symptoms, there is a good chance your pool’s pump might need repair or replacement.
- A sudden and unexplainable jump in power bills.
- Your pump is leaking water.
- Your pump is making more noise than usual.
- Pump is making a rumbling, grinding or screeching sound.
- Blowing bubbles or “spitting” water.
- Pool water is dirty even with the pump running.
- Low pressure on the filter gauge
- Low pressure on the return jets in the pool.
The pump on your pool is one of the most critical mechanical pieces for making sure that your water stays crystal clear. The main function of your pool pump is to push dirty water to the filter of your pool and return clean water to your pool. It’s important not to put off or procrastinate if you notice any of the symptoms we mentioned above. Waiting on a pool pump issue can lead to failure with more expensive consequences. It’s better to repair a pool pump issue than have to replace the whole thing.
