Pool pumps consume a lot of electricity. Did you know that running a one-speed pump 24/7 throughout the summer in Ontario can cost over $1,000 in a pool season? Many one-speed pumps are overpowered for the pool they are installed on, and in certain cases are circulating the entire pool volume 4-6 times in a 24 hour period. Current studies have shown that 2-3 turnovers is sufficient to filter pool water and keep it safe, which suggests that one-speed pumps operate very inefficiently.
VARIABLE SPEED PUMPS
Modern technology has produced variable speed pumps, which are much more energy efficient than one-speed pumps. Variable speed pumps use an efficient magnetic-induction motor and come with a built in timer to help reduce power consumption during peak electricity periods. These pumps are able to be programmed to change the speed of the impeller to minimize electricity consumption. By switching to a variable speed pump, it is possible to save $300-$500 per season in electricity.
