What to Consider?

How long your pool pump should run each day is determined by looking at the size of your pool, how often your pool is used, and the size of your pool pump.

Rarely does a residential pool require more than a 1 horsepower (HP) pump. If you opt for a larger pump, you will find that the water is being circulated too quickly for a proper cleaning to take place.

You should allow your pool pump to run for a long enough period of time that all the pool water has the opportunity to circulate completely through the pump system and filter.

Why Choose Us

If you have an average sized pool and are making sure it is properly cleaned and maintained, most pool pumps do not need to run for more than six to eight hours in a 24 hour period.

However, it is important to understand that some pool pumps may need to run for as long as twelve hours a day for the best results.

    Determining How Long Your Pool Pump Needs to Run

    If you have a new pool pump, it is best to begin using it in six hour intervals. After the six hours are up, assess the water.

    If it is not as clean as you would like it, increase the time using thirty minute increments until your water has the desired appearance.

    This tells you how long your pool filter will need to run each day for the best results.

    A Few Additional Thoughts

    Keep in mind that there is no reason for a pool pump to run 24 hours a day. Not only will you see your monthly energy bill go through the roof, but it also puts more wear and tear on your pool pump.

    To extend the lifespan of your pool pump, be sure to use skimmers to remove visible debris in the pool, as well as empty the straining baskets at least once a day to decrease the chances of clogged drains, which make the pump work harder.

    If you are looking to have a heater install please contact us at (561) 674-6909 or send us an online request here.

    Tip #2: Think about your budget. Typically, solar power heaters are a larger investment than the other options.

    However, they are green and can save you money over time since they do not use electricity to heat your pool.

    If you have a smaller budget to work with, however, a pump or gas option would be the best pool heater option for you.

    Tip #3: How often do you think you will use your pool heater?

    If you plan on using your heater for more than four to six months out of the year and live in a sunny place the solar option is a good choice.

    If you plan on only using the heater a couple of months out of the year, the gas or electric option are the better choices.

    Have You Considered a Pool Pump Timer?

    Installing a pool pump timer is ideal because it allows you to automatically run the pump for short periods several times a day. This not only makes the pool pump more efficient, but it also prevents you from having to keep track of how long the pump has run and when it needs to be turned off.

    Every pool owner knows that a good pool pump is crucial for maintaining a pool that you want to jump in. If your pool pump doesn’t seem to be getting the job done as well as it used to, it is time to contact Master Touch Pool Services at (561) 674-6909 for expert service you can trust.
