Equipment Repair and Replacement
Pool equipment such as pumps, filters, and heaters work with each other to properly sanitize, filter and heat your pool. The average life span for each piece of equipment is 10 years so you can expect to replace these items at any time nearing the 10-year mark. Often times the equipment set is overlooked and not properly cared for and this will lead to premature failures. At APT we can repair and replace all types of pool equipment and can provide you with a free quote anytime.
We are also a TRADE ALLY with Duke Energy. If you are interested in an energy audit or would like more information on how you can reduce your energy consumption please call or email us anytime.
VARIABLE SPEED PUMPS
We are a trade ally with Duke Energy and participate is their energy efficiency efforts. Variable speed pumps have been used in commercial applications for decades but have recently been introduced to the residential pool market. These motors operate using the Affinity Laws and are fundamentally different than the standard efficiency motors as well as being constructed in a different way. Simply put, the variable speed pump allows us to reduce the speed of the motor which allows the water to flow at a reduced speed. The lower speed reduces friction within the plumbing which in turn reduces the amount of energy needed to push the water through the pipe. While most of the manufacturers claim a 90% reduction is energy consumption, I have measured a more realistic reduction of 50% to 65% and this is primarily due to the minimum flow rates needed for waterfalls, heaters and salt system. If you are interested in this technology, please call me to discuss or to set up a replacement appointment.
