Cleaner, Clearer Water

The pump controls the circulation of the water you swim in. It keeps things filtered and clean. So, what’s the difference between the different kinds out there? 

There are three types of pool pumps: single-speed, dual-speed, and variable-speed.

Single & Dual Speed Pool Pumps

The single-speed pump works exactly as it sounds. It has one operating speed. It runs at full horsepower every time you turn it on. They are the least expensive to buy upfront but are the most costly to operate.

Dual-speed pool pumps have a high and low operating speed. You can choose the low setting when you’re filtering the water and then switch to high-speed for more demanding tasks. Both single and dual-speed pool pumps use induction motors.

What Is A Variable Speed Pool Pump?

A variable speed pool pump is the most energy-efficient option. The variable speed motor uses a permanent magnet technology, which is the type of motor found in MRI machines and electric cars. It lets you control the speed with high and low options and then anything in between.

Is Variable Speed Worth It?

If you have been dealing with pool pump repair costs, or want to lower your pool operating costs, you have probably considered upgrading to a variable speed pool pump. Is this option really worth it? 

There are numerous advantages to choosing variable speed over dual-speed or single-speed pumps.

  • More Energy Efficient
  • Less Expensive To Operate
  • Quicker Filtration
  • Quieter Operation

Energy & Financial Savings

Just the fact that you have precise control and can turn the pump down based on the task being performed means money savings on operating costs. A variable speed pool pump uses less power and is more energy-efficient as well.

Most pool owners see enough savings to recover their costs entirely in less than two years. Some pool owners have even reported up to 83% savings in annual energy costs by simply upgrading their pool pump. 

So, while the variable speed pool pump is the most expensive option upfront, the reduced energy and operating costs can make it more economical in the long run.

Quicker & Quieter Operation

By choosing a variable-speed pool pump, you are able to run it at lower speeds during your filtering hours. This consumes less energy as well as filtering more effectively.

A single-speed pool pump runs at 3,450 RPM, whereas the variable speed pump can run as low as 600 RPM. The result is significantly reduced motor noise. You can set your timer to clean your pool during the overnight hours without disturbing anyone’s sleep.
