You have to spend money to save money. That’s not quite the right saying, but the swimming pool contractors from Imperial Pools, Inc. in Champaign, Illinois explain the benefits of variable speed pool pumps. A variable speed pool pump is an investment upfront, to be sure, but the money you save over the life of your swimming pool could be substantial.

If you ever want to go green with your pool operations, a variable speed pool pump is another way to help that happen. Variable speed pool pumps reduce the amount of energy used and the money you spend to circulate the pool water.

Benefits of variable speed pool pumps

The job of the swimming pool pump is simply to circulate the water throughout the pool. If you are vacuuming the pool, the pump will work at a higher speed and consume more energy. If you are only circulating the pool chemicals throughout the water or just keeping the water circulating, there is no need for the pump to operate at the highest speed.

\When you use variable flow technology you have the potential to save up to $100 a month on the portion of utility bills relegated to the pool and its operation. Variable flow technology and variable speed pool pumps are energy efficient and move the water at a slower rate of speed, using the smallest amount of energy necessary to keep the water flowing through the pool — unless more power is needed..

There are myriad steps you can take to reduce the energy consumption and impact your pool has on the environment and another plus is that you’ll be saving green in your wallet!
