New Hayward Ecostar C Is Industry’s Most Energy Efficient Variable Speed Pump At Any Speed

Hayward® Commercial Pool Products has introduced the industry’s most energy efficient variable speed commercial pump at any speed, the EcoStar C Variable Speed Pump. Designed for unparalleled efficiency and convenience in commercial in-ground pool and spas, as well as waterfalls, fountains and other water features, the EcoStar C can save pool operators up to 90 percent on energy costs.

The EcoStar C is fully Title 20 compliant with up to eight custom speed and timer functions. For added security in a commercial setting, the settings can be “locked out” for authorized access only. “EcoStar C’s advanced hydraulic design moves water more efficiently, while operating at lower speeds,” Stuart Baker, VP of Business Development said. “This minimizes the noise level and, ultimately, the energy costs.”

EcoStar C is available with or without integrated VGB compliant SVRS, featuring automatic restart to mitigate nuisance tripping. This pump also features a unique multi-position, digital control interface that can be rotated on the pump, or remotely on a wall. A bracket and communication cable mounting kit for remote installation is included as standard.

The system also comes with interchangeable bases to facilitate easy retrofitting into existing pipe-work. Additional EcoStar C Pump features and benefits include:

  • Permanent magnet, totally-enclosed fan cooled (TEFC) motor
  • Passcode protection of configuration menus to prevent unauthorized access to timer or speed settings
  • Large ribless basket for extended time between cleaning
  • 2” x 2 1/2” CPVC union connections make installation and servicing fast and easy.
  • Industry-leading hydraulic design
  • NSF listed

How Variable-Speed Pumps Save Energy

When we talk about pool renovations, repairs and retrofits that reduce a pool’s energy consumption, the focus typically turns to the pump, because it consumes more energy than any other piece of pool equipment. Plus, a well-designed variable-speed pump can reduce the energy costs of running a swimming pool by up to 90 percent.

Why? Historically, pool pumps with induction motors that run at only one or two speeds have drawn more energy than is required to circulate pool water. That is because a pump that can run at only one speed must use a powerful enough speed to do the pump’s most demanding job (e.g., running a waterfall or pool cleaner). However, it takes far less power to simply keep water filtered—a difference single-speed pumps cannot address.

Most variable-speed pumps can be programmed to operate at set speeds to deliver the correct flow for each task they perform, such as operating a suction-side pool cleaner, waterfalls or spa jets. Some pumps have built-in constant-flow software, which maximizes the advantages of variable-speed technology; constant-flow pumps automatically adjust their speed and deliver the required flow for each programmed task. For example, an arcing laminar water feature may need 40 gallons per minute (gpm) to produce a smooth 6-ft arc of water. A constant-flow pump can sense the resistance being added to the system as the filter collects dirt and will automatically speed up so the water feature continues to get the amount of water it needs. With other types of pumps, including some variable-speed pumps, the water feature will gradually throw a shorter arc of water as the filter gets dirtier; it will only be restored to its original appearance after the filter is cleaned.

No matter what kind of pump is being used, slower pump speeds save energy. They also dramatically reduce the noise level associated with traditional pool pumps and reduce wear on not only the pump itself but also on filters, heaters, chlorinators and other equipment that water flows through.

Sticker Shock

Even with all of these advantages, the price tag of these technologically advanced pumps may at first seem hard to justify. But compare the cost of a new variable-speed pump with the cost of doing nothing.

If a pool uses a single-speed pump, it may cost $900 per year to run that pump. (Numbers will vary by region.) After five years, the owners will have spent $4500 running that pump. Meanwhile, in a well-designed system with a variable-speed pump, the comparable operational costs may be as little as $200 per year. So at the end of five years, the dollars spent running the pump will be about $1000, less than 1/4 what would have been spent running the old single-speed pump. The cost savings continue to multiply the longer the new pump is used.
