|Calabasas Pool Motor Repair Tips
Did you know that pool-duty motors are rated with a unique variable called the Service Factor? This number is found on the information label affixed to the motor. Multiply this by the rated horsepower to get the actual potential of its working ability - called Todal Horsepower. As with many things, there is usually a variable that makes life more interesting, and this goes for the same in the swimming pool industry. Take for example a Pentair 1/2 hp pump. It has a SF of 1.65, so the actual load bearing potential is .50 x1.65, or .825 hp. That translates into more hp than a 3/4 pump with a 1.0 SF rating. A half hp pump can be nearly a full horsepower. Whether you live in Woodland Hills or Calabasas, pool motor repair requires professional expertise to properly size you pool circulation needs, and SF is just one of the considerations when choosing replacement items.
