by Pool Builders on 03-21-2011 in Articles

The sky is blue, the temperature is rising, and it's time to start preparing and planning for summer to finally be more than just a hint on the horizon. Topping the list of things to get ready for those long, hot and lazy days is, of course, opening up your above ground or on ground pool. The cover is still good, the sides are all sound, the ladder is in place and everything is ready to start filling her up until... Uh-oh, looks like someone or, more likely, something damaged your pump over the winter! Time to start shopping around, not just for a new pump, but also for one of the best above ground pool pumps out there!

The first step, of course, is to start looking for an affordable pump manufactured by a reputable company. This means staying away from your local store looking for a super bargain. Trust me, they fail quickly and need to be replaced far too often to make them cost effective! Of all the manufacturers out there, Hayward takes first marks, with a 30-year proven reputation for providing the best above ground pool pumps available at prices that won't make you cringe and whimper. For thirty years, Hayward has set the standard for above ground pool pumps, making them unarguably the best manufacturer out there.

Next, you want high performance and durability. Once again we find ourselves looking at Hayward as the leader! The SP1580 has been designed specifically for the trials and tribulations of above ground and on ground pools. These lightweight pumps are housed in their own corrosion-proof reinforced thermoplastic for all-weather performance. They are one hundred percent drip proof, heat resistant and have a double-sized seal, all to provide a long motor life. Additionally, that one horsepower motor is extremely powerful, setting new standards. Face it, buying a new pump and having it die on you within a single summer season is frustrating, so investing in something built to last is important!

For ease of maintenance and ecological impact, once more we find ourselves looking at the Hayward as an industry benchmark in the category of best above ground pool pumps. With it's heavy-duty motor, the SP1580 offers not just dependable performance, but also quiet operation. With its extra large debris basket and clear cover, it is simple to not just see when it needs to be cleaned, but to manage the cleaning with very little effort. Energy efficiency, low sound impact, and ease of cleaning all add up to letting you enjoy your summer more and pay for it less.

Overall, with its ease of use, energy efficiency and durability, I would have to say that, although a "lightweight" at a meager 25 pounds, its powerful yet quiet motor, safety and maintenance features, and energy efficiency all combine to make it the heavy weight champ amongst the best above ground pumps. All of these features with a price tag that make it affordable add up to you enjoying your pool all summer long, worry free. Because your swimming pool was made to be fun, not work!
