Energy Efficient Pool Pumps
Until recently, there had been very little change in the design of pool pumps. However manufacturers recognised that the pool pump was one of the biggest consumers of electricity in most households, and with the cost of electricity rising, they had to react. The result is a pump motor with an operating speed that can be varied. The science behind variable speed pumps can be complicated, but the end result is a pump that will turn over the same amount of water using 1/8th of the electricity. The simple answer as to how this is possible is that the slower you pump the water through the pipes of the pool, the less energy is lost to friction.
The latest in variable speed pumps
The original variable speed pumps had three factory set speeds to choose from, whereas the latest range are completely variable, allowing you to set the speed at the most efficient level to suit your particular pool.
How much can a variable speed pump save you?
For every year you delay changing to an energy efficient pump, the pump has cost you an extra $700.00!
In most cases, the cost of installing one of these pumps is recovered in less than two years by the savings in electricity.
With the life span of the average pump around eight years, these pumps could save you $5000.00 over their life when compared to a standard 1.5hp pump.
