Pool Pump Servicing – It Is Time!

Why Servicing Your Pool Pump Is Important.

In order to keep your water fresh, clean and hygienic your most important piece of equipment needs to be fully functioning.  Without your pump the water becomes stagnant and bacteria starts to settle and grow.  Once the pool water is out of balance it can take weeks to clean and return to safe levels of cleanliness ready for swimming.

Parts in the pumps can become worn over time such as the bearings, o-rings, seals and the housing unit.  If these parts are not maintained the pump begins to leak and make excessive noise and can over heat leading to sort circuiting or other problems.

Things you can do at home.

Regularly cleaning the pump strainer, checking equipment.  While the pump is running take the time to check for leaks and listen for unusual sounds. Keeping the pool free from large debris (such as leaves and sticks) can also help in the longevity of your pump – these items can sometimes get stuck in the impeller causing low effectiveness. Not maintaining your pump can lead to expensive repairs.

 Take a look at our website for swimming pool equipment.

Weed Problems

After the recent rains, I have had a profusion of weeds sprouting. While mechanical removal is probably the best way of weed removal, sometimes you need to use garden chemicals to deal with the problem. I use them as required to deal with weeds that are not easy to physically remove.

Glypho 360 Green is an indiscriminate weedkiller and is used where you want to kill off all the weeds in an area, for example weeds and grasses that are coming up through mulch or under fences.

The Ravage or Dicamba is a selective weedkiller and is particularly useful in tackling broadleaf weeds in lawns. 

If used carefully, these garden sprays are safe to use. We have some safety directions down the bottom of the page. Also remember not to spray when it is windy as some of the spray may drift onto desirable plants.

Call us if you need more helpful information on these products.

Glypho weed spray

Low-toxic aquatic, water-soluble herbicide for non-selective control of many annual and perennial weeds in certain situations as shown in the directions for use table.

Green is a highly concentrated weed killer used to kill all unwanted common weeds and grasses anywhere in the home garden. Glyphosate Green 360 – unlike Ravage, is not selective so may kill plants etc if they are sprayed. Glyphosate Green 360 is also effective in killing woody weeds.

It is available in 1litre,5 litre and 20 litre packs

Ravage Dicamba MCPA

Got a problem with broadleaf weeds in your lawn. The answer is the tried and tested Ravage.

Ravage is sometimes known as Dicamba. It is a selective weedkiller meaning it doesn’t affect your lawn grasses, only the broadleaf weeds.

Is Your Drinking Water Clean?

Why your water may not be clean.

Recent weather events have seen strong winds and heavy rain. With all this activity, water sources can become contaminated with unwanted debris.  Debris from these weather events include, leaves, dirt, bugs, and bacteria. If you have a water tank that has run off from a roof this is especially true. Having the roof run off may fill your tanks however your roof may be visited by birds and other animals, leaving behind unwanted gifts and guests.  When it comes to safe clean water, is the water in your home really as clean as you thought.

Making a splash at Ipswich Grammar School


Ipswich Grammar School had a problem. Their waterfall which graces the entrance of the school was not working. This was a issue for the school as the waterfall was required as the backdrop for the school formal photos.

The solution was to call DJ’s Electric Motor and Pump Centre. Our Service Manager Dan along with Steve, our resident pump expert “jumped in” to solve the problem in double quick time. They found the problem to be a faulty foot valve. This was ordered and replaced and the waterfall was ready for students to capture their special night.




So if you have a pumping problem, like Ipswich Grammar School, just call DJ’s Electric Motor and Pump Centre for expert assistance. We can help with any pumping problem.
