Typically, pool owners who switch to variable-speed pumps recover the cost of the pump in energy savings in less than two years. You could SAVE tons of your hard earned cash every year just by upgrading your pool pump.
Sure, the ability to simply turn down your pump will cut down on energy use, but there’s a little more to it than that.
Pumps don’t need to run at full power all the time to keep your pool water clean. In fact, when you’re filtering your water, your pump can run at a much lower speed than when it’s doing more demanding jobs, such as running a water feature.
