Climbing energy costs have driven manufacturers to rethink the way their products use energy. The results have been amazing. Today, our computers, refrigerators, lightbulbs, and many other day-to-day appliances have become far more energy efficient than their predecessors. Despite these great improvements, many homeowners still have at least one appliance in their home that devours a huge amount of electricity: the pump that filters their pool or spa.
Most pool builders install pool pumps that have only 1 or 2 speeds that determine the rate at which they filter and pump water. Pumps like these are typically great at keeping the water in a pool clean and fresh, but perform abominably when it comes to energy efficiency. Typical water pumps can cost up to $900 a year to keep running, which can put a significant dent in your wallet, especially in the long run. Over time, pool and spa owners have demanded a more energy-efficient way to keep their water pure. To meet this need, Pentair has developed a product that pumps volumes of water at only the rate you need.
At Hilltop Pools and Spas, Inc, we proudly carry variable-speed pumps that can adjust their pumping rate to meet your needs exactly, not excessively. This makes a big difference in your energy bill. The Pentair variable-speed pump can operate year-round for as low as $200 a year and is built to last. If you’re a proud pool owner that cares about conserving energy, it might be time to switch out the pump of your pool. You might be surprised to see how much money you can save while reducing your energy needs.
Variable-speed pumps work smarter, not harder. If you use a water pump for a fountain or waterfall, you might notice that an average pump loses pressure when its filter fills with more debris. Variable-speed pumps pump a constant flow of water, even if the filter is close to needing a cleaning. It’s easy to see why these pumps are a favorite of pool builders everywhere. This keeps your water display continuously beautiful and pressurized. A variable-speed water pump might just be what your pool or spa needs.
