What is a Variable-Speed Pool Pump?

Also known as multi-speed pumps, variable-speed pool pumps are one of three types of pool pumps you can buy. The entry level, least expensive pump is a single-speed pool pump. It operates at full horsepower whenever you turn it on.

Dual-speed pumps let you choose low- or high-speed operation. Choose the low setting to save power and money when you’re simply filtering the water. Choose the high speed setting when you’re doing more demanding tasks, such as vacuuming or adding chemicals.

Variable-speed pumps let you control the speed, whether low or high, or anywhere in between. Most of these energy-efficient pumps are powered by a different type of motor than the first two, called a permanent magnet motor. This type of motor is used in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machines and electric cars. It’s typically more efficient than the induction motors in single- and dual-speed pumps.

Some newer variable-speed pumps feature drop-in replacement, making the upgrade simple. Some of them can even be programmed to operate at optimal speeds for certain tasks, such as filtering and running deck jets. They’re also more reliable than the other two types of pumps.





Want to know why IntelliFlo pumps outsell all

other variable speed pool pumps?

When Pentair first introduced IntelliFlo variable speed technology, it

set off a marketplace revolution with its energy efficiency, near-silent

operation and long service life.

The IntelliFlo Variable Speed Pump further refines the field-proven

advancements that have led IntelliFlo pumps to outsell all other variable

speed brands. Check out these advantages,

and you’ll quickly see why:

• Estimated cost savings of up to $1,500 each year.

• Energy savings up to 90% versus traditional pumps.

• Dramatically quieter operation—as low as 45 decibels.

• 8 programmable speed settings and built-in timer assure optimum

   speed and run times for maximum efficiency and savings.


Savings based on variable speed pump compared to a single-speed pump running 12 hours per day at an average of

$0.16 per kWh in a 20,000 gallon pool. Actual savings may vary based on local utility rates, pool size, pump run time,

pump horsepower, pump rpm, plumbing size and length, pump model, service factor and other hydraulic factors.

Compared to noise level of typical 1.5-horsepower single-speed pump.


Variable Speed Pool Pump Installation with Rebates

While often underrated, a pool pump is the most important part of your swimming pool. It can labor to keep the pool circulating, pulling water from the skimmer & main drain, then pushing water into the filter and through the heater (and up to the roof if you have solar) and finally sending it back through the pool returns to circulate chemicals, keeping the water safe to swim in. The pump essentially runs the pool, so when your pool pump is running ineffectively or not at all, it can take your pool from relaxing to stressful. Not only can an inefficient or failed pool pump keep you out of the pool, it can cost you money.

When your pool filter pump fails, consider a variable speed pool pump.

Along with Title 20 regulations , Caltech Pool service and repair is helping to raise the bar on pool pump installations. The legislature mandates that energy efficient standards are met for all new residential pool pumps and all pool pumps needing motor replacement.
