Swimming Pool Pump Installation
The pool pump runs the pool. It circulates the water through your entire filtration system, the skimmer and main drain, the filter, the heater, and even up to the roof if you have solar. Your pool pump ensures cleaning chemicals circulate correctly and keeps the water safe for swimming.
A lousy pump can create no swim zone fast, and it can be costly to fix or replace one – that’s why keeping it in proper working order is essential.
Pinnacle Pool Service specializes in installing and repairing variable-speed pool pumps to guarantee your pool time goes uninterrupted.
Why Upgrade To A Variable Speed Pump?
Because it can save you thousands of dollars a year. Pool pumps are one of the most common upgrades at Pinnacle because consumers are more educated than ever. Time and again, and after researching on their own, they almost always go with a variable-speed pump.
Variable-speed pool pumps also run quieter and last longer than single or dual-speed pumps. And if you live in California, they are now required by law.
Types of Pool Pumps We Service & Install
Single-speed pumps are your traditional pool pump and have been used for decades. Once turned on, they run at a constant speed, and while they are the least expensive option, they’re also extremely noisy and inefficient. A single-speed pool pump can be the most expensive appliance in most homes, costing up to $2,000 per year to operate in some areas.
A Two-Speed pump is a variation of the single-speed pump in that they both use what’s known as an induction-style motor. The difference is that a two-speed pump has a low-speed option, which is far more efficient than running the pump at high speed all the time. On average, a two-speed pump will save about 50%-70% on energy costs compared to a one-speed pump.
Variable speed pumps utilize what’s known as a permanent magnet motor – this is the same type of motor used in electric cars. They allow you “dial in” the exact flow rate needed for the pool, reducing the flow rate of water and friction and making the entire system more efficient. Variable pumps are also much quieter, vibrate less, run cooler, last longer, are digitally controlled, and have advanced diagnostics. Most studies show they are 90% more efficient than standard, one-speed pumps.
