The importance of properly maintained and managed pool water is paramount to the longevity of your pool facility and it's equipment, and failure to do so, will inevitably result in what is an avoidable equipment failure. Of course, equipment can and will at some point just get old and require replacement.
√ High-Rate Sand Filter
When your filter media (sand / glass) material loses it's sharp edges and becomes more rounded, it has less ability to capture all the finer dirt and foreign matter being passed through your filter. Backwashing more frequently and high consumption of chemicals can also indicate your filter media (Sand) is ready for a change.
√ Filter Laterals Change
Sand returning to your pool could be a sign that your filter laterals are broken and need replacing. If your filter media (Sand) is old and has been in situ for a long time, this may also be a good time to change this too.
√ Pump Bearings
All things mechanical including your water pump, will, from time to time require a little care and attention. Your water pump should run smooth and quiet and if this is not the case and you hear loud squeeling noises or a very noisy laboured pump it could be that your water pump bearings may need replacing. Some however, have been left too long and further damage means a complete pump replacement.
√ Water Pump
There are many areas of a swimming pools operation that can and will contribute to water pump failure including unbalanced water chemicals, pump age, wrong filter rates, over worked pumps and lots more.
