How Long Do Pool Pumps Last?

The lifespan of a pool pump can vary depending on several factors, including the quality of the pump, how well it’s maintained, and how often it’s used. 

When we build a pool, we are sure only to use the most reliable products we know will stand the test of time. 

We will also ensure our customers know how to maintain their pool and pump upon installation. We will never leave you high and dry to figure things out on your own.

That being said, on average, a well-maintained pool pump can last anywhere from 8 to 15 years. However, some pumps may last even longer with proper care.

If I Complete Regular Maintenance, Will My Pool Pump Last Longer?

Regular maintenance is crucial for extending the lifespan of a pool pump. This includes cleaning and backwashing the filter regularly, ensuring proper water chemistry and balanced pH levels, and inspecting the pump for any signs of wear or damage. 

Protecting the pump from extreme weather conditions and winterizing it properly during colder months can also help prolong its lifespan.

If all of this sounds unmanageable for you for whatever reason, our experts are available to help with the regular maintenance of your pool. 

We offer various options to take just a few things off your plate, like opening and closing your pool, all the way up to taking care of everything for you, with a regular maintenance route available in the Des Moines area.

Having our professionals take care of your pool for you allows you more time to enjoy your pool and ensures that your pool and pool pump will last for years.

Is There a Specific Type of Pool Pump That Lasts Longer?

It’s important to note that different types of pool pumps may have different lifespans. For example, traditional single-speed pumps may have shorter lifespans compared to more energy-efficient variable-speed pumps, which can last longer due to their ability to operate at lower speeds for longer periods.

Our experts are available to you whenever you are ready to start shopping and comparing pool pump options.

We are well versed in all the ins and outs of pools and their parts, as we have been building them daily for years now. 

We also build and service both gunite and vinyl liner pools which means no matter what you have at home, we can help you.
