The cleanliness of your swimming pool lays in the hands of your pool pump. Having the right pool pump based on the size of your pool is crucial in order to avoid water contamination and pricey maintenance bills.

The Importance of a Pool Pump

Why do you have a swimming pool in your home? Most will answer with; for swimming (obviously), and because it looks good in the backyard. Pool maintenance can be time consuming and let's be honest everyone has the intention to look after their brand new pool, but as time passes, it becomes harder and harder to find the time needed to maintain properly. Choosing the right pool pump, chlorinator and pool cleaner from the word go is crucial, but there are so many to choose from right?! Let’s talk pool pumps, but first, you need to understand the importance of a pool pump in order to get this right.


Pool pumps play a paramount role in the functionality of your Perth swimming pool. Pool Pumps are in charge of the water/chemical circulation within your swimming pool in order to effectively sanitise your pool. The recommended times a day that the water in your pool should be turned over varies depending on the size of your pool. This process aids in removing debris, fighting against algae & bacteria. Hence why selecting an ‘average’ pool pump can turn out ot be a costly investment. Yes, you’ve already forked out what feels like a small fortune for the pool itself, but trust us when we say investing in a better quality pool pump will save your time and money in the long run, because keeping the circulation of your swimming pool on point is so important.
