Installing A Pool? 3 Benefits Of Installing An Energy-Efficient Pool Pump

Posted on: 27 October 2022

If you are installing a pool in your yard, one thing you must buy is a pool pump. These pumps can be expensive, and there are many types to choose from. One type is an energy-efficient pool pump. Below are three benefits of this type of pool pump. 

Save Money

One of the main benefits of an energy-efficient pool pump is it will save you money. Depending on the size of your pool and your home, it can use up to 15,000 kWh per year. This also depends on the size of the pool equipment you use. The main equipment that uses this energy is the pool pump. Using this much energy will increase your monthly energy bills. If you live in a warm climate and use your pool much of the year, this extra energy will result in you losing even more money. Combine this with the amount of energy you use in your home. 

An energy-efficient pool pump uses less energy when it runs. This is because an energy-efficient pool pump runs at a lower speed. This will also help the pump last longer because it will not run as often. 


A standard pool pump can be loud when it runs, and you may even hear it inside your home if you are sitting near a window by the pool. An energy-efficient pool pump is much quieter.

These pumps are quieter because they run at a much slower speed. Another reason these pumps are quieter is the fan is completely enclosed. The pump may be so quiet that you will not even know it is running. This can be beneficial for you, as well as anyone else that is swimming in your pool. 

Can Control Other Water Features

If you have other water features near the pool, such as a spa, waterfall, etc. your energy-efficient pool pump can also control these things for you. The pump will control how much water flows in a spa, waterfall, and other features. The contractor can connect these things to the pump when they install it. 

These pumps have dials on them that allow you to easily turn the dial in order to change the speed of the water flow. This is beneficial as you may want a stronger flow in a spa, or you may want the water to flow slower down a waterfall.
