Pump Overview

In this video, we will explain how your pool pump works, regular maintenance, and how to operate a Pentair Variable Speed pool pump.

The pump pulls water from the pool to the equipment using the skimmers and main-drains located in the pool. Once the water reaches the pump it creates pressure; pushing water through your pool equipment until it is pushed back into the pool through the returns.


  • Shut your skimmer valves before opening the pump lid
  • Check your pump basket at least once a week during the summer, and twice a week in the spring and fall months. Empty or as needed.
  • To start your pump select the desired speed setting and press the start/stop button.
  • To stop your pump press the start/stop button.
  • Depending on your pool size and features your pump may be programmed at different speeds.
