A pool pump housing, also known as a pool pump kennel, is a protective enclosure that is used to encase the pool pump. This housing is designed to protect the pump from damage and to provide a stable and secure mounting for the pump. It is typically made of a durable and weather-resistant material such as plastic or metal. The housing typically includes a lid or cover that can be removed for access to the pump and its components. It also has an opening on the bottom where the water enters and exits the pump, also known as suction and discharge port. The housing helps to keep debris, dust and other contaminants from entering the pump and clogging the system, it also can keep the pump safe from the weather, and help to reduce the noise emitted by the pump.
