The heart of your circulation system, your pool pump, pulls water from one or more suction ports (i.e., skimmer & main drain), and then pushes it through the filter & heater (if you have one) and back to the pools’ return ports. An electrically operated water pump is the prime motivator in recirculating the water from the pool. Water is forced through a filter and then returned to the pool. Using a water pump by itself is often not sufficient to completely sanitize a pool. Commercial and public pool pumps usually run 24 hours a day for the entire operating season of the pool. To save electricity costs, residential pool pumps are typical run time is between 6 hours and 12 hours in summer with the pump being controlled by an electronic timer. Most pool pumps available today incorporate a small filter basket as the last effort to avoid leaf or hair contamination reaching the close-tolerance impeller section of the pump. All of the manufacturers of pumps well respected, very large, international market leaders, and DMV Pool Service is here, to give the right choice among all products.
Proper pool maintenance is a must to keep your pool water sparkling and clean at all time. One of the most important pieces of equipment to maintain is the filter. There are three basic types of filtration systems – Sand, Cartridge and DE. While there are different maintenance procedures for each type, all require periodic cleaning depending on the type of filter and how often a pool is used. A clean filter is less efficient than one with a mild amount of dirt in it because the dirt helps trap other particles, which removes debris from the water. However, you don’t want to let the filter get too dirty. A sign that it’s time to clean is an increase in flow pressure gauge. DMV Pool Service install filters from all leading brands, all types and all sizes.

Pool heaters typically require the least maintenance of all pool equipment. Gas heaters can work fine without being serviced for a couple years, and electric ones can last even longer. Sometimes, calcium scales build up inside the tubes of a heater and restrict flow, preventing the water from heating adequately. Though the heater is usually the most expensive component of the pool equipment, but it can be often repaired rather then changed. DMV Pool Service techs understand the value of customer’s money and would never over price you selling new heater if it can be simply fixed.
