Variable Speed Pool Pumps

Tristar Speed Pump

Variable speed pumps require a minimum of 2 inch pool plumbing. On many older pools, the pool plumbing is 1 ½ inches. In these cases, we recommend the use of a high-performance Hayward TriStar pump. These pumps offer up to 70% savings on your pool energy costs. It is the most hydraulically efficient pool pump that provides superior flow and energy efficiency. This allows for stepping down in pump horsepower for even less energy consumption. The heavy-duty performance motor with dynamic airflow delivers cooler operation and added energy savings.

A variable-speed pool pump can save a homeowner on electricity costs by using less energy to circulate and filter the water in a pool. The exact amount of savings will depend on several factors, including the size of the pool, the volume of water that needs to be circulated, the size and efficiency of the pump, and the price of electricity in your area.

As a general rule, a variable speed pump can use up to 75% less electricity than a traditional single-speed pump, which can result in significant savings on your monthly electricity bill. For example, if you currently pay $0.12 per kWh for electricity and use a single-speed pump that consumes 3,000 watts per hour, it will cost you $0.36 per hour to operate the pump. If you switch to a variable speed pump that uses 1,000 watts per hour, it will cost you only $0.12 per hour to operate, which is a 66% reduction in energy consumption.

If you run your pump for six hours per day, this would result in annual savings of about $362 (assuming no price increase in electricity). However, it’s important to note that this is just a rough estimate, and your actual savings will depend on your specific circumstances.
