Size – How big is your pool or spa, start by measuring the length, width, and height to determine the volume of water that will need to be pumped. This will help to guide you on the size of the pump
and turnover rate.
Type – What type of pool do you have, is it an above-ground pool or a below-ground pool, concrete or fibreglass? What is the diameter of your pool pipes? This information further helps to narrow down the right pump for your pool in particular with the required or maximum flow rate.
