    How to Minimize Pool Pump Energy Costs

    Minimizing Pool Pump Energy Costs

    variable speed pool pumps

    Why Slower is Better

    The surprising secret to minimizing pool pump energy costs is to operate at the lowest flow rate needed to accomplish a job. It takes far less energy to move water slowly. Why? Because of lower resistance in the filter, accessories and plumbing systems. Even though a pump will work longer at a lower flow rate, this is far more efficient. In fact, reducing pump motor speed by half actually reduces the power needed to one eighth of what's consumed at the higher speed. A good analogy is your car, you get much better gas mileage at 30 mph than at 90 mph. The same is true with pool pumps.
