Energy Efficient Pumps
Pool pumps are among the most power-hungry appliances in a home. Energy Efficient Pool Pumps achieve energy savings by reducing the flow rate of the pool pump. Not only does this save power but also dramatically reduces noise.
Most pool pool pumps operate at 2800 RPM, when you halve the speed of a pool pump to 1400 RPM the cost of running the pump are around a quarter of the cost. Not all pool can operate at half the speed. Each pool is different and energy efficient pumps need to be fine tuned to maximise savings and to ensure that effective filtration is achieved.
The fact is that most of the time effective filtration and circulation are achieved at much lower rates. Occasionally higher flow rates are required, ie. vacuuming, backwashing and specific applications such as water features, spa jets and in floor cleaning require higher flow rates. This is when a press of a button will allow the pump to ramp up to higher speeds to cope with its new task.
Energy Efficient pumps reduce pool operating and ownership costs. The payoff times are very short.
There are really only 2 choices of energy efficient pool pumps. Astral and everyone else. The reason for this is Astral manufactures their own motor and all other manufactures used the same energy efficent pump. So essentially there is really only 2 choices on the market. Astral Energy efficient Pumps have advantages over the others. They can set to prime at any speed for up to 2 hours. All other brand that use Fasco Motors prime at full speed for 5 minutes before setting down to the energy rated speed. This may be a problem if starting at night.
