On a hot and humid afternoon, there's nothing more enjoyable than plunging into a clean pool. Before the summer heat arrives, you'll want to see that your pool is ready for swimming. If you have your pool serviced regularly, that effort will help ensure everything is prepared for the warm weather. One of the most common problems you might come across is a malfunctioning pool pump. Before a complete breakdown occurs, pay attention to the common warning signs that indicate your pool pump motor needs to be repaired.
A Worn-Out Impeller
The impeller pushes water through the pump system. A low reading on the filter pressure gauge may signal that your impeller is worn, and if these low readings occur frequently, it's time to schedule a repair.
A Broken Seal
It is important that the pool pump has a tight seal with the pump housing via an O-ring. This O-ring can wear out over time and cause water to come out of the pump housing. If you see this leakage occurring, it's time for a repair. When this problem is not addressed, water could blast forcibly from the pool pump into your pool and cause injuries.
A Damaged Motor Shaft
The motor shaft is located inside the pool pump, and it drives the pumping function. A damaged motor shaft could result in greatly reduced pumping performance. If you see water leaking out from underneath the pump, this is a sign that the motor shaft is damaged and it's time for repair.
