The pump is the “heart” of the pool’s circulation system. All the water circulates through the pump at some time. To keep your “heart” healthy, make sure the strainer basket is kept clean. Depending on the time of year and debris, the strainer basket may need to be cleaned several times a week or as little as once a month. If debris passes through the strainer basket it can clog the water flow. Clean out the clog immediately. Always unplug the pump when working with internal parts.
There are many parts associated with a pool pump.
