Swimming pools and spas in San Diego are operated with pool pumps. These pumps circulate the water within the pool or spa through the filter, helping to clean the water. In addition homes, apartments, condominiums, hotels, and business complexes may feature water fountains, waterfalls or other unique water features. All of these features depend on a fully operational circulation pump. When any of these pumps fail a pool pump repair will be needed or in some cases replaced with a new pump.
Pool Pump Repair for San Diego Homeowners
Common problems with San Diego hot tubs and pool pumps.
During the average lifespan of a swimming pool or spa pump, there will eventually be the need of a pool pump repair. There are many symptoms that indicate an existing pool pump may be in need of repair or replacement. Intermittent power failures, high pitched squealing or buzzing noises and low water flow are some typical signs that a pool pump may need to be serviced. When this occurs San Diego County pool owners should have ProTouch Pool Services determine what pump repair is needed.

Upgrading Your San Diego Pool Pump
Occasionally, a swimming pool or spa pump is so badly damaged that repairing the pump would cost about the same as installing a new pump. In these instances, ProTouch highly recommends replacing worn out pumps with an energy efficient, variable speed pool pump. Smart pumps create an energy efficient swimming pool experience and helps reduce the overall cost of electricity on the monthly utility bill.
Not just a good idea, it’s the law.
Title 20 requires every California pool circulation pump greater than 3/4 horsepower to be replaced with a two speed or variable speed pump. If there is already a pool equipment controller in place, a new high efficiency pump can usually be programmed to work with the existing controller.
