# How Far Can A Pool Pump Water? [Expert Review!]

The question is; how far can a pool pump water? That is, how deep can one get their pool water? Essentially, this is dependent on a few factors. The first is the size of your pool, and the second is what size of pump you have.

The deeper the pool, the more water can be extracted. However, a deeper pool can also mean that you will be working at a much greater depth. If your pool is 12 feet deep, you can expect that you will need a 12-foot pump at least to extract all of the water. Of course, this is assuming that your motor is not too weak to handle the increased weight.

## The Size Of Your Pool

The first factor that determines how far your pool pump can reach is the size of your pool. This will determine how much water can be extracted from it. If you have a small pool that is maybe 4 to 6 feet deep, you may only need a 6-foot pump to fully extend the water’s surface. A large pool that is 10 to 12 feet deep will need a bigger pump, usually a 12- or 14-foot one.

There are two schools of thought on this matter: you either need a big pool to be able to use a long pump, or you need a long pump to be able to work in a big pool. The truth is that it’s not entirely one or the other. Instead, it depends on what you want out of your pool-cleaning experience. If you want to clean the pool thoroughly and effectively, you’ll need a big pool and a long pump. However, if you’re happy to skimp out on the cleaning equipment and just want to get the job done, you can opt for a smaller pool with a shorter pump.

## The Size Of Your Pump

The next factor that determines how deep your pool pump can reach is the size of your pump. This is measured in HP (horsepower) and in British Thermal Units (Btu’s). A 10-foot pool will need a 10-foot pump, which has a capacity of 10 HP or Btu’s. Similarly, a 12-foot pool will need a 12-foot pump, which has 20 HP or Btu’s. Once again, the size of your pump directly correlates to the amount of water that it is capable of lifting. The more HP and Btu’s that your pump has, the deeper it can reach. If you have an average-sized home pool, you will not need a particularly large or tall pump to clean it thoroughly. However, if your pool is exceptionally large, you may need an extension ladder to reach the head of it!

If you’re looking for a simple way to clean their pool without having to hire a professional cleaner, many homeowners opt for a portable pool cleaning pump. These are battery-operated and have an adjustable handle so that small children or elderly people can use them easily. Similarly, if you have limited mobility or are just too weak to operate a standard garden spade, a portable pool cleaning pump is perfect for you.

To work in a deeper part of your pool, you will likely need a bigger nozzle (more than one spout) to be able to direct the water at a specific spot. This is a simple method that many people use to ensure that all of the gunk at the bottom of the pool is removed. Essentially, you are creating a series of holes in the pool’s bottom, so that the water can drain through them. By using a bigger nozzle, you can make larger holes and allow for more water to drain through. This will mean that you can clean the pool deeper, as there will be less build-up at the bottom afterward.

Some people use a net under the water to help trap large debris that may be floating around in the pool. When removing debris from deep within the pool, a net can be very useful. Some homeowners pull their pool’s water from the deep end, pour it into a large container, and then run the container under a running faucet. This allows the debris to be washed down the drain. Using a cleaning net underneath the faucet can help keep your drain free of obstructions for the duration of the cleanse!

## Other Considerations

Aside from the size of your pool and the size of your pump, there are a few other considerations that you need to make before attempting to cleanse your pool. The first is how often do you clean the pool? If you have children who play in and around the pool, you will need to ensure that they are supervised when in the vicinity of the water. Second, where do you store your pool cleaner? It’s a pain having to search for a few cans of pool cleaners every month. It is more convenient to have them in easy reach, either at home or in the garage. Third, how do you intend to cleanse the pool? Many people use chemicals to do this, but if this is too toxic for you, there are other, more eco-friendly methods that you can try out. Fourth, what is your overall goal? Are you just trying to clean the pool and be done with it, or do you want to make the water healthier to enjoy in the first place? If you just want to clean the pool, any gadget that gets the job done will suffice. However, if you want to make the water healthier, you will have to perform some sort of water treatment, such as adding chlorine or chlorinating the pool water. Adding more than a couple of tablespoons of chlorine each week will help improve the water’s chemical balance, making it simpler for your pool’s organisms (fish and bacteria) to live in! If you don’t have the time to perform these tasks yourself, it’s a good idea to hire a professional cleaners who can handle all of this for you.

It’s always a good idea to test the water in your pool before purchasing any equipment or chemicals for cleaning it. This way, you’ll know exactly how clean the water is and what components are in it. If you decide that the water needs to be cleaned, you will have the option of using any of the products or services that I discussed in this article.
