The Parts of Your Pump

The pump is actually a combination of two pieces of equipment known as the housing and the motor. On modern variable speed pumps the motor has an additional component called a driver.

Common Problems

The Housing

The housing is the front half of the pump which has the inlet (suction side MIP) the lid for you to see into the pump basket. inside of the housing down towards the motor is the most essential part called the impeller. This is spun by the motor to force water up out of the housing and on into your filter

 

Common Issues

  • Air leaks on suction MIP

  • Water leaks on return MIP

  • O-ring cracks

  • Impeller blockages

  • Lid cracks

The Motor

This is the what powers your pool. The motor has a spindle that transfers power and connects to the impeller inside the housing. To protect the spindle and internals of the motor from water damage we use shaft seals that should always be replaced whenever a motor is replaced. Typically faults that stop a motor from working require a replacement motor as things like water damage are unfortunately irreversible.  

 

Common Issues

  • Shaft seal failure

  • Bearing failure

  • Capacitor failure

  • Overheating

The Driver

Variable speed motors need a brain and this is just that. Programming timers and speed settings varies from model especially when it comes to automation system integrations so be aware that most pumps integrate best with their brands automation best. For example Jandy's Variable Speed  FloPro Pump connects very easily to the Jandy iAquaLink® system as opposed to one of Hayward or Pentairs offerings.

Common Issues

  • Weather seal failure

  • Connectivity problems
