Variable – Speed PUMP

According to EPA Energy Star third-party testing, Hayward’s TriStar variable-speed residential pool pump is the most energy-efficient pump on the market.

What Does a Pump Do?

The pump is essentially the heart of the swimming pool’s circulation system.

Your pool’s circulation system comprises the elements of your pool that take water from the pool, filters it, sanitizes it, and returns the water back to the pool. If your pump is not running, the water from your pool is not being properly circulated or filtered.

Energy Saving Variable-Speed Pumps

Variable Speed Pump Benefits

It may be surprising to learn that a single speed pool pump can be the second largest consumption of energy in your house after heating and air conditioning. With the installation of a variable speed pump, it is possible to cut the associated energy costs up to 90%, which can translate to hundreds or even thousands of dollars every year.

As with most advanced, more efficient products, variable speed pumps cost more than single speed pumps. This incremental investment is often recovered in energy savings in less than two years. In addition, many municipalities and states offer utility rebates, further offsetting the initial cost.

Additional Benefits

In addition to incredible energy savings, variable speed pumps offer additional benefits such as:

  • Noticeably quieter than traditional pumps, not to go unnoticed especially in a home with a smaller space
  • Advanced motor technology: totally enclosed fan cooled (TEFC) design provide added reliability compared to standard pool pump motors
  • Allow for better and more effective pool filtration through slower water filtration rates.

Single Speed

These pumps use an induction motor that runs at a constant speed of 3450 RPM. They can be flooded suction pumps, meaning they are placed below the water line using gravity to keep the pump primed, or they can be self-priming, which is the typical in-ground installation.

Two Speed Pump

The two-speed pump uses an induction motor that operates at either full-speed (3450 RPM) or half-speed (1725 RPM). When running at half-speed, a pump can provide significant energy savings, while still having the ability to run at full-speed when more water flow is needed.
