There's nothing like enjoying a refreshing dip in your backyard pool in Glendale, AZ. It's hard for a pool to be refreshing, though, if it's full of dirt and debris. That's where your pool filter comes in. As the core of your sanitization system, your pool filter is absolutely essential to the ongoing enjoyment of your pool.
Inside every pool filter is a powerful motor that pumps thousands of gallons of water every hour. To ensure that this motor lasts, here are a few tips from Run Em Again Motors on how to protect your pool filter's motor.
You likely use surge protectors to protect your expensive electronic devices from electrical surges. Your pool filter, though, is also an expensive device that is powered by electricity. Therefore, it's important to install a surge protector on your pool filter as well. There are surge protectors available that are rated to handle the power that a pool filter motor uses, ensuring that you have adequate protection. This will provide extra peace of mind when your neighborhood is having electrical issues.
Although pool filter housings are built to be waterproof, that doesn't mean that they can't lose that protection over time. It's important to open your pool filter from time to time to ensure that the motor is dry. One way to spot water problems is to see if your motor has any rust on the metal components. If it does, it's a good idea to have the motor inspected by Run Em Again Motors to ensure it isn't damaged.
To achieve perfect water quality, you don't have to run your filter 24 hours a day. In fact, doing so will only cause your motor to die sooner than expected. That's why it's so important to follow the manufacturer's recommendations for your pool filter so that you can save energy and protect your filter motor.
