What is a Variable Speed Pool Pump?

If you've heard of variable-speed pool pumps and want to learn more, or if it's time to upgrade your pool pump, you'll definitely want to keep reading! In this blog, we outline what a variable speed pool pump is, how it works, and its benefits.

What types of pool pumps are there?

The pool pump circulates the water in the pool. The circulation ensures that the chemicals are dispersed evenly and the water is pumped through the filter to keep it clean and free of debris.

There are 3 types of pool pumps. Here is a brief overview of each type:

1. Single speed

This is the original pool pump. Single-speed pool pumps tend to be the cheapest, but there are some caveats. A single-speed pump always runs at full horsepower, which is much less energy efficient than a two-speed or variable-speed pump. These pumps are also quite noisy.

2. Double speed

Two-speed pumps have high and low settings. They are more efficient than single-speed pumps and are slightly more expensive.

3. Variable speed

Unlike single-speed or two-speed pumps, variable-speed pumps allow you to control the speed. They are about 90% more efficient and quieter than single and dual pumps.

Is a variable speed pump the best choice?

In our professional opinion, yes. Variable speed pumps are the best choice for a number of reasons. They do require higher upfront costs, but the benefits greatly outweigh the initial investment.

Here is a breakdown of the benefits of variable speed pool pumps:

They consume less electricity

Less electricity consumption = save on your energy bills

They filter faster and more efficiently

They help keep the pool temperature stable

Your swimming pool will be effectively cleaned and disinfected
