One of the easiest and most effective ways to make your pool pump more efficient is to upgrade to a variable speed drive pool pump.
Rather than running at a constant high speed, like most pool pumps, variable speed drive pool pumps are able to adjust their speed depending on the task.
This allows you to run the pump at a lower speed for certain tasks which don’t need such high speeds, such as filtering water, skimming surface leaves and running the auto-cleaner.
By running at lower speeds, the pool pump uses much less electricity, helping you reduce the running costs of your pool.
If you’re looking for a new pool pump, variable speed pumps are a great option. You can buy one from your local pool shop.
But if your existing pool pump still works well, a pool pump controller is a great way you can get the benefits of a variable speed pump without having to buy a new pump.
