Upgrade to an ENERGY STAR certified pool pump
A pool pump uses more energy than most of the other devices and appliances in your home. If you don't currently have a variable-speed pump, you could be wasting hundreds of dollars by pumping at a higher speed for more hours than needed. Installing a properly sized variable-speed pump can save you 30-72% on its energy costs.
How it works:
certified pool pumps optimize energy use while also keeping your pool clean and comfortable, which makes them more energy efficient. What to look for:
- The right size pump. The larger the pump, the greater your energy and maintenance costs. Use the smallest size pump possible for your swimming pool. To choose the right size pump, consult a pool supplier's design chart to match the hydraulic characteristics of the pump to both the piping and the pool's flow characteristics. Consult a pool supplier or installer for help.
- A daily or seasonal timer. Most pool pumps come with a programmable timer. Schedule your pumping according to your needs. Seasonal timers automatically adjust your pump run time to match the needs of your pool throughout the year.
