Swimming Pool Heartbeat

The heartbeat of any pool system, the pump is responsible for circulating the pool water, ensuring the water treatment chemicals are evenly distributed and preventing stagnation.

Having the correct pool pumps running the filtration element of the pool, combined with correct swimming pool filters and water treatment, will ensure that the pool water stays crystal clear and bacteria free. There are many pool pumps on the market to choose from, so it is important to match the requirements of the pool with the correct pump to maximise performance. Latest models offer variable speeds to offer greater efficiency and cost savings.

Here are our top picks from some of the UK’s leading suppliers…
