Your swimming pool can be the source for approximately 20% of your overall household energy consumption. By simply upgrading to a variable-speed pool pump, you will see a cost savings on your energy bill as well as contribution towards protecting the environment.
Variable-speed pool filtering pumps provide swimming pool owners the ability to conserve energy by pumping at lower speeds during normal operation, and then the option to pump with a higher speed as needed for the operation of pool cleaning equipment or water features. The faster that pool water is filtered from your pool, the more energy you will use. Just by choosing to slowly filter the pool over a longer duration per day, you can actually save almost half off your monthly pool electric usage costs*.
Slowing down the rate of water in the pool pump can reduce pumping costs because the water will move slower throughout the piping system and reduce the overall friction. Allowing for decreased friction within the system reduces the pump’s back pressure — as a result, the pump motor is working less hard to do the same work. Faster pool pump filtering uses more energy, but by setting the pump to lower levels you save energy and money. It is that simple.
