A Green Swimming Pool?

When you hear the phrase “green swimming pool”, immediately your thoughts turn to an algae and frog infested swamp, not a beautiful backyard oasis. However what if you could have a crystal clear pool that is also green? Believe it or not, a swimming pool filtration pump is, on average, the second largest user of electricity in the home. By installing an ultra-energy efficient variable speed pool pump you could reduce your operating cost to approximately ten dollars each month, potentially saving you hundreds of dollars each year!


How much does my pool pump cost to operate each month you ask?

Here’s how it works. A typical 1 ½ horsepower pool pump running 8 hours a day costs approximately $1.65 per day or $50.00 per month to operate. But this is only the beginning of the equation. These figures assume that your motor is new and at optimum operating conditions. Have you ever felt the side of your single speed motor when its in operation? All the heat being produced by the motor is lost energy and that heat is actually causing the inside of the motor to deteriorate. This leads to reduced efficiency and increased energy costs.

A 1 ½ horsepower pool pump typically uses between 2000 and 3000 watts per hour. But what does that look like in everyday terms? Let’s look at it this way. Would you leave a 100 watt light on for 8 hours a day? Of course not! But every day you are leaving the equivalent of 25 lights on by operating your single speed pool pump.

Your Pool Pump Uses The Energy Of 25 Of These For 8 Hours Every Day!
