Imagine running your car at 3450 RPM – all the time! Think of the gas expense and the wear and tear on your engine, if you raced around with the tach at 3500!
Well, that’s what your standard pool pump does everyday. The motor shaft inside spins at over 3400 rpm, which uses a lot of energy and puts out a lot of heat, about 150° – too hot to touch.
A Variable Speed (VS) pool pump operates at several speeds – low, medium or high, to optimize energy usage. The long-life, permanent magnet motor is cool to the touch, and is quiet as a breeze. But the best part is, VS pool pumps can save up to 80% in electrical cost.
