owners will see energy and cost savings. A variable speed pool pump could save homeowners up to 90% on their energy costs compared to conventional single- or- two-speed pool pumps*. In addition, VS pumps offer higher performance, less noise, and are longerlasting compared to single-speed pumps. All these factors combine to create a better pool experience with improved circulation and less wear and tear on equipment.
Selecting the Right DOECompliant Pool Pump for Your Pool
Pool owners need to make an educated decision on the next pump they put in their pool. Dealers should have conversations with their customers about the new DOE regulations and their unique needs when it comes to selecting the right pump. The following questions can be used as thought starters for those conversations.
1. What size pump is needed? The pump will need to be able to pump all the water in your pool through the filter in no more than 8-10 hours.
2. Will the pump support additional features such as a spa or water feature? The extra features customers love about their pool may require a larger pump.
A variable speed and flow pump offers more flow control options as well.
3.Where will the equipment be located? If it is close to the house or near a neighbor, the quiet operation of a VS pump may be a key selling point.
4. What is the upfront cost and what are my potential energy savings?
While there are multiple pumps on the market, dealers can help customers navigate the process and find the best solution for their pool and their needs. With new regulations in hand, it’s time for pool owners to investigate VS pool pumps and the benefits of adding auto-adjust flow technology available from Pentair. Not only will a VSF pump meet the DOE regulations, but it offers pool owners the ease of cruise control. Customers can set their flow rate to automatically adjust speeds to maintain flow, so they can spend less time worrying about their pool and more time enjoying it.
