Variable Speed Pool Pumps - Energy Efficient Excellence
Variable speed pumps are extremely Energy Efficient. Unlike the inefficient induction motors used in single and two-speed pumps, variable speed pool pumps utilize what's known as a permanent magnet motor. This is the same type of motor used in electric cars. They allow the user to "dial in" the exact flow rate they need for their pool, allowing them to capitalize on the golden rule of pool circulation; slower is more efficient and longer is cleaner.
The idea is that by reducing the flow rate of water, there is less friction, which makes the entire system dramatically more efficient. The longer a pump runs, the cleaner the water. Standing pool water (when your pump turns off), is not sanitizing, therefore algae will start growing.
Variable Speed Pool Pumps are also much quieter, vibrate less, run cooler, last longer, are digitally controlled. They have advanced diagnostics. Basically, variable speed pumps are the Cadillac of pool pumps, and most studies show that they are 90% more efficient than standard single-speed pool pumps. This typically equates to an operating cost of approximately $20-$30 per month. The pump will virtually pay for itself within the first 18 months.
