Pool Pump Installation Guide

The necessary tools to installing a pool pump: The technical pool service or otherwise commonly called the pool guy/gal will bring some tools when come to installing a pool pump. The tools need to installing a pool pump will be a large set of channel locks, a regular size set of channel locks, a flathead screwdriver and a water bucket.

Keep in mind the guide of installing a pool pump:

The connection of side suction pump pool

The suction side of the pump will be connected to the skimmer line as well as the main drain if the pool has one. The pool pump can be connected to flexible lines if the pool is a higher plant. Swimming pool elevated swimming pools use common flexible pool hoses to connect the pump and filter unless the pool is a semi-above ground. If the aboveground pool is halfway down the floor (swimming semi-buried pool) then it is likely that the pool will have a main drain and use of a rigid PVC pipe. If the pool is a plant in the pump the pool will most likely be connected to hard or rigid PVC pipes and SCH 40 fittings.The service technician connects the suction side with common PVC fittings such a PVC male adapt and A PVC joint. The other side of the joint will be connected to the three-way or Jandy Hayward Tri-flo valve.

Connect the pump side outlet

The discharge side of the above-ground pool pump is usually connected to the multi-port pool filter by the pool service technician. This line will normally be a flexible line that will run from the top of the pump to the pumping port of the filter pass valve called the multiport. If the pool has a previous Hayward Perflex ground pool filter system, then the discharge side of the pump will connect to a syndicate and will connect to the filter. The most common discharge side in the ground pool like the Hayward, Pentair and Sta-Rite pumps often pipe into a multi-port directional valve. The pool type is going to do this with SCH 40 fittings and rigid PVC joints. These accessories will also be glued together with PVC Glue & Primer.

Priming pool pump

Once the pool pump is connected and connected to the pool service technician you will need to do something called pump bombing. Priming is the addition of water in the pump volute so when the pump starts you can start drawing a vacuum and you, in turn, have something called the water flow. The way a guy in the pool is going to prime the pump is to take off the pump cap. Once the lid of the pool pump is then removed the water can be poured into the pump until the volute is filled with water. Once the pump is full, the type of service will place the cover and then turn on the pool pump.
