Pool Pumps for Sale in Canada
Pool pumps are the heart of your pool system; a pool cannot function without one. Pool pumps are designed to circulate and filtrate the flow of water so throughout, there is an equal distribution of chemicals and balanced sanitization levels. This in turn creates a clean and healthy pool.
The three main components that allow the pool pump to function are the motor, impeller, and basket. In the filter unit, the basket traps debris including leaves, twigs, hair, and lint from staying in your water. The impeller at the end of the pool pump motor, turns pulling water through your filter and into its debris basket. The three parts work in unison to pull water through the skimmer into your filter main drain and then out through the return jets. In short, water is carried from the pool to the filter, heater, and chlorinator so that it can be filtered, heated, and sanitized before re-entering the pool.
Through hydraulics, pool pumps prevent stagnation and assist in powering the flow of water through your filtration, sanitation and heating equipment systems. With the right swimming pool pump, your water will stay cleaner for a longer period of time, thus, you will spend less time on pool maintenance.

We carry three different types of swimming pool pumps. A single speed pool pump is simple to operate and the least costly of the three. A dual speed pool pump is designed with a high speed dial functioned for cleaning, and a low speed, ideally utilized for filtration purposes. The variable speed pump allows pool owners to control the speed precisely between the low and high-speed settings. It can also be programmed to your preference.
Each and every one of our pool pumps have a horsepower (HP) metric, ranging from 0.5 to 5 HP. The power in a pool pump refers to horsepower, and that number determines the rate of which it will turn the water over. This is important because a faster horsepower means you can run your pool pump less often and for shorter periods of time. Nevertheless, the horsepower you need depends on the size of your filter and the filtration system’s pipes. A pump with too much horsepower can overwhelm a small filter which also wastes energy and will cost more money. Conversely, a 1HP pool pump would not be strong enough to turn over a larger pool’s volume at an adequate rate. Generally, the rule of thumb is a small pool pump is for smaller pools, just as larger pool pumps are best for larger pools.
The decision to close your pool or not is up to you, however, if you choose to keep your pool open during the fall, you want to take extra precaution to maintain the health and cleanliness of the water during those troubling temperatures. The Sta-Rite 013004 IntelliPro VSF Variable speed pump, for example, responds to changing conditions. This is especially helpful in Canada, where a pool pump’s speed is able to adjust to a changing pool environment, maintaining a sustainable flow rate and peak equipment performance is extremely helpful.
