All swimming pools need to be cleaned to a certain level of sanitation in order to get rid of microflora such as viruses and bacteria. Discount pool pumps are a key tool in preventing the spread of diseases and algae which can turn the visual clarity of a swimming pool into a murky green mess.
What Do They Do?
Electrically operated discount heat pumps help recirculate water in swimming pools. Water is pushed through a filter and then placed back into the pool. Ordinarily, pool pumps use 500 to 2,000 watts and are run 24 hours a day in commercial and public environments, while residential pool pumps might be run for around 4 hours a day in periods when the pool is not being used and between 6 to 12 hours in the summer when the pool is experiencing considerably more traffic. Some pool pumps feature two different motor speeds that help limit power consumption in this eco-aware age we live in.
Some manufacturers of discount pool pumps have released units possessing a smaller electric motor featuring larger windings. This results in less energy use. In most cases, pool pumps are self priming, which means they are positioned above the mean water level of a pool although they can still start and function after a timed period.
A Pick Of The Best
Among the best value discount pool pumps is the Certikin Hydroswim HPS, a centrifugal model with self-priming capacity and 1.5″ and 50mm socket unions. It operates quietly; is compact, simple, and robust; has a noryll impellor; is made from durable resistant composite material; possesses high hydraulic efficiency; features patented strainer basket; can be used on treated water, brackish water, sea water, and fresh water; has a IP55 class F motor, and a stainless steel shaft.
More expensive in the discount heat pumps market – but equally as efficient – is the ESPA Silen2 200T which can filter and recycle water from both medium and large swimming pools. It possesses 1.9 litre pre-filter capacity, head up to 20m, delivery up to 35m per hour, maximum suction lift of 4m and AISI 420 stainless steel motor shaft. The ESPA has the advantage of toughness, with its seal constructed from graphite and alumina. Its motor details are: 400V 3ph 50Hz 1.5kW 2HP. It has both a glass loaded polypropylene pump body and diffuser as well as glass loaded noryl impellor.
Another great example of discount pool pumps is the New Waterco Multicyclone, a slightly different product that acts as a pre-filtration device able to save water and reduce the amount of maintenance required for a filter over its life. The Multicyclone, in its operation as a pre-filter before sand filtration, removes particles that can end up clogging up the water filters in the swimming pool. This product can be used in conjunction with other, larger-scale pumps to guarantee a comprehensive cleaning of your pool or used alone to tackle the more awkward and complex aspects of swimming pool sanitation.
