Single Speed vs. Two Speed vs. Variable Speed Pool Pumps

Tampa’s Pool Pump and Motor Experts

If you happen to own an older pool, chances are it has a single-speed or two-speed pump. These types of pumps are the traditional models that have been discontinued by manufacturers due to their energy inefficiency and failure to meet the latest guidelines set by the energy commissions for pool equipment.

By choosing to replace your existing single- or two-speed pool pump with a variable speed pump, not only will you save a significant amount of money on your electricity bill, but you’ll also enjoy a quieter and more enjoyable pool experience. 

Here at Hawkins Service Company of Tampa, we have a dedicated team of skilled technicians and electricians who are experts in pool equipment repair. You can trust us to handle your pool pump and motor needs, ensuring that your pool stays clean and comfortably warm throughout the entire year.

If you want to learn more about our comprehensive pool services, feel free to give us a call.

Variable Speed Pumps

Variable speed pumps utilize a permanent magnet motor, the same type of motor used in electric cars. These pumps also automatically adjust themselves to the level of water flow necessary for your pool at any given time, which makes for a quieter and more energy-efficient pool pump. Here are some of the main observations our customers make about their new pool pump after installing a new variable speed pump:
  • Quieter
  • More Efficient
  • Longer Lasting
  • Digitally Controlled
  • Big Savings on Electric Utility Bills

Pool Pump Troubleshooting Tips

Pool pumps and motors can last for up to a decade before needing to be replaced. However, depending on your maintenance schedule and a few other factors, you may experience problems with the pump and/or motor much sooner. Either way, here are some tips for troubleshooting some of the most common pump and motor problems.

FAQs

If the pump isn’t pumping water like usual, check the skimmer baskets for heavy debris. If the skimmer basket is clear, turn off the motor and reach into the pump basket to feel if it’s clogged with debris. If not, contact an electrician to disassemble and inspect the motor and pump assembly.
 
If your pump makes a grinding noise during operation, it probably means the pump is starved for water. Check inside the pump, if possible, to find the cause of the obstruction that is blocking water flow to the pump. A noisy pump can also be the result of internal components striking one another, which will typically require you to purchase a new pump.
 
If the motor runs for a short while, then shuts itself off and turns itself back on repeatedly, it may be overheating. Low voltage is one of the main causes of an overheating pump motor, so schedule an inspection with a residential electrician to check the electrical supply connectors and wiring.

Awesome experience with Hawkins. Scott showed up on time, fixed the problem with my home AC, and charged a very fair price. I also have rental property and from now on, Hawkins is the only company I'll call for any AC or furnace issues. Thank you!

Our technician Nicholas Becker was great! He quickly diagnosed the problems we had with our Aqua Logic Control board and fixed it after quoting us cost. He also diagnosed and repaired our Spa heater. Nicholas was upfront about what the problem was and had the part he needed to make a quick repair. We won't use…

We purchased our pool through a longtime local company thinking they would be there for us when a repair need arose, but sadly, they were not interested in servicing us and wanted to charge a service all fee, even when we were still under warranty. They recommended we call Hawkins and have them come out instead.…

HAWKINS was hired to complete the wiring on our condo dock after Tampa Dock and Seawall abandoned the project unfinished. They have done a fantastic job, professionally, on time, and without plodding. I’m very satisfied and will look for opportunities to use them again.

This company was AWESOME! They took care of getting the electrical inspection passed - 10 years later - after the original permit was found still open from a pool builder that had gone out of business. The open permit was discovered by the title company from a pool built YEARS before I bought the house. Their…
