Circulation

  • Replace your pool pump with a more energy-efficient model.
  • – New variable speed pumps with permanent magnet motors and digital controls can save as much as 90% in utility costs compared to one- or two-speed pumps with induction motors.

    – If using an energy-efficient one- or two-speed pump, make sure your pump is sized to your pool’s requirements.

  • Reduce run time or speed to reduce energy use.
  • – If using a one-speed pump, reduce filtration run time. In general, water needs to be circulated through the filter once every 24 hours.

    – If using a two-speed or variable speed pump, use the lowest speed to appropriately circulate the water. Reducing speed saves more energy than reducing run time.

  • Run your pool’s filtration system during off-peak hours when electricity demand is lower, generally between 8 p.m. and 10 a.m. Install a timer or a control system to automate the hours of operation.
  • Keep intake grates clear of debris. Clogged drains require the pump to work harder.
  • To obtain maximum filtration and energy efficiency, backwash or clean your filter regularly, as required
