== == My pool is about 15 yrs old. It is 15,400 gal, with a 600 gal spa next to it, and they both run off the same 1.5hp pump. Works great. In my case, the spa dumps excess water into the pool, so I keep the pool & spa returns open all the time and the overflow eliminates worrying about balancing the water flow. Jim. Our pool is 20000 gal and a spa next to it with 1000 gal both operated by a 2 hp Jacuzzi brand pump for the last 10 yrs, also 5 solar panels on the roof for great

Is it all right to leave an in ground pool pump on 24 hours a day?

Yes it is safe, in fact I would recommend it; I manage a pool and spa store in Richmond, Va and own a pool myself. We never turn the pump off in season except for routine maintenance. Keeping the pump on helps keep the pool properly sanitized, and prevents the growth of algae and water molds. It is to my knowledge, not harmful to the pump, as most of our customers do the same, and we don't have many failures. Manufacturers build the pumps for this kind of use, they are warn out faster by starting and stopping than by continuous operation.

Putting in a new pool pump inground does it have to the same brand?

It would be recommended to observe the pump size rating (horsepower) and replace with a swimming pool pump that has a similar flow curve. In terms of brand name, there is no reason that you need to use the existing brand again unless you want to.

Can you use an above ground pool pump for an inground pool? In simplest terms, an above ground pool pump is a flooded suction pump, which means the water level must be higher than the pump for it to operate, and an inground pump has the ability to draw water up from a level lower than the pump. The engineering and structure of these two different types of pumps is what makes them work the way they do. This means that, in a typical installation, you could use an inground-specific pump on an above ground pool, but not an above ground pump on an inground pool with the water level below the pump.

How do you connect pool heater to pool?

Most heaters are plumbed last in the pool piping system. First is the water pump, then the filter, then the heat pump and finally the pool. If you have a chlorinator then that will be put last in the system after the heater and before the pool and usually there is a check valve between the chlorinator and the heater to prevent a high dose of chlorine from damaging the heater. If you are going to use a heat pump then that is made from titanium then that doesn't matter as chemicals don't damage heat pumps like they do gas heaters. There are some piping diagrams at that will also show you spa layouts, solar etc.

Will a 125 btu heat pump heat a 16x32 pool in central New Jersey from mid-May through mid-September?

I doubt that that small of a heater would be adequate for a tiny pool in California. Does it have a spa attached? I would not use anything smaller than 400,000 BTU gas heater. I have little knowledge of heat pumps per say but I would think the same. Larger is better. Your pump would have to literally run continuously. Consult with a local pool builder or a trusted pool store. Information like this would, I think, be free. Ken
