Should a pool pump be on the ground?
Insulated ground wire is required for grounding pumps. Making a mistake grounding and bonding a swimming pool pump can be deadly. Grounding enables faster circuit breaker action, and bonding ties conductive metal parts together so they have the same electrical potential. Together, both reduce the risk of fatal shock.
What is the difference between a above ground pool pump and a inground pool pump?
The main difference between the inground and above-ground pumps is that above-ground pumps need manual priming, whereas inground pumps are “self-priming.” Since most inground pumps are above water level, this relates to the pumps capacity to raise water vertically.
What happens if a pool is not grounded?
Without a grounding system in place, people or pool equipment may become the conductor. Harmful electrical current may move toward people, pets, or equipment instead of moving away and to the earth.
How many gallons per minute does a 1.5 HP pool pump?
42 gallons per minute For each 1.5 inch intake line, the maximum flow into the pump will be 42 gallons per minute (GPM).
Can a inground pool pump be used on a above ground pool?
Inground Pumps Can Handle Air as Opposed to Above-Ground Water is filled through the lid of the filter housing. These filter pumps are completely safe to use above the waterline. Above-ground pumps must be below the water table for the pool water to flow freely through the pump.
