Looking After The Hayward Super Pump – Extending Your Swimming Pool Pump’s Life
No matter what pump you buy , remember that there is a level of wear and tear to these machines and they will get louder in time than when you first bought them.
To make them last longer and run quieter for a long time, make sure you properly install and maintain a pool pump.
- Get the pool’s water level halfway up the skimmer box.
- Regularly clean out the pump. On windy days, clear out the debris/leaves in the strainer basket regularly.
- Place Your pump in a level surface.
- Always check that air vents are free from obstruction.
When A Pump Begins To Get Noisy
Once you notice that your pump is getting noisier than it used to be, check it immediately. There are many reasons why a swimming pool pump gets noisier in time so it’s best to check it as soon as possible to stop the problem from getting worse.
Here are a few reasons why a quiet Hayward Super pump may start to get noisy:
- Problem with the bearings
- air flow obstruction
- Loose debris in pump housing
The Hayward Pool Pump Manual Advices the Following For Noisy Hayward Super Pumps
1. Air leak in suction piping, cavitations caused by restricted or undersized suction line or leak at any joint, low water level in pool, and unrestricted discharge return lines.
Solution: Correct suction condition or throttle return lines, if practical. Holding hand over return fitting will sometimes prove this point or putting in a smaller eyeball fitting.
2. Vibration due to improper mounting, etc.
Solution: Mount the pump on a level surface and secure the pump to the equipment pad.
3. Foreign matter in pump housing. Loose stones/debris hitting impeller could be cause.
Solution: Clean the pump housing.
4. Motor bearings noisy from normal wear, rust, overheating, or concentration of chemicals causing seal damage which will allow chlorinated water to seep into bearings wiping out the grease causing bearing to whine.
Solution: All seal leaks should be replaced at once.
