AquaComfort pool heat pumps are designed, tested and manufactured with the goal of creating efficient pool heat pumps that last as long as possible. But how long can a pool heat pump really last?

We all know that a pool heat pump is a really affordable way to heat your pool whether you live in a sunny state or not, but every pool heat pump owner or potential buyer wants to know how long it will live. Pool heat pumps can be a great investment for those looking to get maximum usage out of their pool in the colder months. The great thing about pool heat pumps is that when properly looked after, they can have a really long life span. An AquaComfort pool heat pump can last up to 10-20 years with proper care.

So, how can you maximise your pool heat pump lifespan?

Check your chemical levels

Keep your pool heat pump’s internal components safe by keeping your chemical levels at the right pH balance. High levels of acidity can corrode the internal components making them less effective and more likely to break down over time. 7.4 is generally considered the correct pH level for a pool, so be sure to check your chemical levels regularly and if you use chlorine, be sure to install your pool heat pump before the chlorine filter.

Repair any damage to the pump

The best way to avoid further damage is to repair parts when they break. This way the damaged parts won’t interfere with other components of the pump. If you want your pool heat pump to last up to 20 years without any major repairs, then repairing it when necessary is essential. It’s also recommended to book your pool heat pump in for a service every few years or so just to check everything is working properly. This may seem over the top, but it can save you money and add years to your pool heat pump’s lifespan.

Clean your filters

The cleaner your pool water is, the longer your pool heat pump will last. It’s essential for general pool health and overall hygiene that your filters are cleaned regularly so that they can do their job. The cleaner the water in the pool is, the easier it is for your pool pump to pass the water through. If your heat pool pump is overworked, it will get tired and won’t live as long. Clean your filters regularly with a chemical solution to ensure they are working at their best.
