Please note:

1.Changing the pump may require re-configuring of the pump inlet and outlet pipes.

2.If you have added solar panels and your pool cleaner is not performing as it should  consider upgrading the pump. If you have a .75 kw pump you should upgrade to a 1.1 kw. The greater the number of panels and the higher they are above the pump will determine the size of the pump required.

3.Suction leaks are a common problem and if excessive will affect the operation of your pool pump. Leaking inlet pipes will cause air bubbles in the water which can be seen by looking through the pump leaf trap lid while the pump is running. Let the pool pump run for a while then check the pool outlet and look for bubbles. Check the suction pipe joins and make sure that the lid O-ring is sealing properly.Air leaks will affect the operation of your pool cleaner. If you suspect that you have an air leaks call in a professional to diagnose the problem.

4.Leaking solar panels can cause air leaks this should not be confused with suction leaks. The water drops faster than the pump can deliver this causes a vacumn and the air will be sucked in at any leaks. Solar panel air leaks will cause air bubbles at the outlet pipe and can affect the suction side.Often the panels are noisy with the sound of rushing water. 

5.Don't be fooled by claims of power consumption savings. The bigger the pump the more power that will be needed to run it. The basic laws of physics apply to all pumps.

6. When you install a new pump remove the filter lid and stir the sand. Run the pump for a while with the lid off so that the dirt can be removed. It is a good idea to stir the sand while the pump is running. Be careful not to break the filter fingers at the bottom of the filter.

7. It is not unusual to find leaks after you replace a tired old pump. A good place to check is the waste pipe as the multiport valve may leak when the valve is set in the filter position. If your pool is losing water this is a good place to check first. 

8. Alot of older pools were fitted with oversized pumps which causes unnecessarily high electricity bills. Often we replace the pump with a smaller model to suit the pool size. There is no change in performance but you will notice the electricity savings.
