Your pool pump is the unsung hero of your pool’s circulation system, working tirelessly to keep your pool clean, clear, and healthy. But did you know that upgrading to a variable speed pump (VSP) can revolutionize the way your pool operates? Let’s dive into why making the switch to a VSP is a game-changer for pool owners everywhere.

First things first, let’s talk about how a pool pump works. Designed to pull water through the skimmer and/or main drain using an impeller, the pump creates a vacuum effect, drawing water into the filtration system. As the water moves through the pump, it transitions from being pulled from the skimmer to being pushed into the filter and then returned to the pool. This circulation system is essential for maintaining clean, clear, and healthy pool water.

Now, let’s explore the benefits of upgrading to a variable speed pump:

Energy Efficiency: With a VSP, you have control over the speed at which the pump operates. By running the pump at a reduced speed when the pool is clean and clear, you can significantly reduce energy consumption, leading to substantial savings on your electric bill.

Quieter Operation: Running your VSP at lower speeds not only saves energy but also reduces vibrations and noise, resulting in a quieter pool environment.

Speed Control: Having the ability to adjust the pump’s speed allows you to fine-tune the flow rate of the water, ensuring optimal efficiency and performance based on your pool’s needs.

Programmable Timers / Automation: VSPs often come equipped with programmable timers, allowing you to set the pump to run according to your pool’s schedule. Additionally, many models can be integrated with automation systems, enabling you to control the pump directly from your smartphone for added convenience.

Longer Lifespan: Running the pump at lower speeds reduces wear and tear on its components, ultimately extending the lifespan of the pump and saving you money on costly repairs or replacements.

Rebates: Many manufacturers offer rebates on VSP purchases, especially when bought from a pool professional. Pair this with instant rebates from programs like Efficiency Nova Scotia, and you’ll keep more of your hard-earned money in your pocket.
