Pool Pumps in Orlando

Quality Pool Pumps in Central & Southwest Florida 

A pool pump is the silent stalwart of your swimming paradise. Working diligently in the background, it circulates water, keeping your pool clean and refreshing. Imagine it as the heart of your pool system, constantly pumping life into your aquatic retreat. It plays a pivotal role in maintaining the health of your pool, filtering out debris, and distributing essential chemicals. Without a reliable pool pump, pools can quickly become murky, unattractive, and even unsafe.

At Fiji Pools, we offer a wide range of pool pumps in Orlando suited to various needs and budgets. Serving Central and Southwest Florida, we offer models that blend high performance with energy efficiency. Our commitment is to provide products and services that meet the highest standards, contribute to the longevity of your pool, and enhance your overall swimming experience.

Signs You Need a New Pool Pump

Understanding when it's time to replace your pool pump is crucial in maintaining the health and safety of your pool. 

Here are some telltale signs that you may need a new pool pump:

  • Loud and unusual noises: If your pool pump starts making loud grinding or screeching sounds, it's a clear indication that something is amiss. These noises often suggest that the bearings within the pump are worn out and require replacement.
  • Increased energy bills: A sudden surge in your energy bills could be a sign of an inefficient pool pump. As pumps age, they tend to lose efficiency and consume more energy.
  • Frequent cycling: If your pool pump is turning on and off more frequently than usual, known as cycling, this could indicate a problem with the pump's motor or a faulty electrical connection.
  • Reduced water flow: Notice a decrease in your pool's water flow? This could mean that your pump isn't circulating water as effectively as it should be, potentially due to a clog or a failing motor.
  • Visible leaks: If you notice water pooling around the pump, it's likely there's a leak in the system. A pool pump leak should be addressed immediately to prevent further damage.

The list above is by no means exhaustive. If you are experiencing a problem we did not mention above, we encourage you to reach out to our team—we can help you locate and resolve the issue. 

What Size Pool Pump Do I Need for My Pool?

Selecting the appropriate size for your pool pump is crucial to the efficient operation and maintaining your pool's water clarity and cleanliness. The size of a pool pump is determined not by its physical size but by its flow rate–the amount of water it can move per minute (gallons per minute, or GPM) or hour (gallons per hour, or GPH). 

To calculate the correct flow rate for your pool, you'll need to know your pool's volume, which is typically measured in gallons. Divide the total volume by 8 (for 8 hours) to get the flow rate required for one pump turnover per day. 

For example, if your pool holds 16,000 gallons of water, you will divide 16,000 by 8, the quotient being 2,000. Therefore, you'll need a pump with a flow rate of 2,000 GPH for efficient circulation. 

Keep in mind that other factors like the pool's plumbing and filter system, the presence of additional features like spas or waterfalls, and local regulations, may affect the optimal pump size. 

Types of Pool Pumps

At Fiji Pools, we offer a variety of different pool pumps so that we can cater to the unique pool requirements and preferences of Central and Southwest Florida. Understanding the different types can help you make an informed choice about the best pump for your pool.

Some of the most common types of pool pumps include: 

  • Single-speed pool pumps: These pumps, operating at a single speed as their name implies, have long been the industry standard due to their reliability. However, their constant high-speed operation may not be the most energy-efficient option.
  • Dual-speed pool pumps: Offering greater flexibility thasn single-speed pumps, dual-speed pumps have two operating speeds: high and low. The high speed is perfect for power-intensive tasks like pool vacuuming, while the low speed is ideal for everyday filtration needs. This dual-speed capability makes them more energy-efficient compared to single-speed pumps.
  • Variable-speed pool pumps: Among the most energy-efficient options available, variable-speed pumps can operate at a range of speeds. This allows you to precisely adjust the speed to match the requirements of different tasks, resulting in significant energy savings and reduced operating costs.
  • Self-priming pool pumps: Equipped with a prefilter basket that collects debris and prevents it from entering the pump, these pumps are an excellent choice for larger pools or those with complex plumbing systems. Their ability to lift water vertically further enhances their functionality.
  • Submersible pool pumps: Designed to operate underwater, these pumps are perfect for emptying the pool or removing excess water caused by rain or spills.

Each type of pool pump has its advantages and is suited to different circumstances. If you need assistance in selecting the best pool pump for your pool, don't hesitate to contact our team. We are always ready and happy to help.
