Does Hayward make a variable speed pool pump?
Hayward® variable-speed pumps are the most energy efficient pumps on the market and deliver huge energy savings from one season to the next—just two reasons we’ve been named EPA ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year.
Can I make my pool pump variable speed?
Variable speed pump replacement motors can be installed on existing single-speed pumps. Upgrading to a variable speed motor is all that is necessary to convert pools into high-efficiency systems. Service technicians should select the variable speed motor that is appropriate for the size of pool, plumbing and pump.
How long do Hayward pool motors last?
Your pool’s pump is the wet end of the operation, it houses the pump basket. Pumps should last through the initially installed motor and perhaps as many as two or three replacement motors, usually 10-12 years.
How long does a variable speed pump last?
Your pool pump should be replaced anywhere between 8 to 15 years depending on the quality, and a full replacement may cost over $800.
Is a variable speed pool pump worth the cost?
The number 1 benefit of a Variable Speed Pool Pump is energy savings. The savings come from the “Variable” portion of the VS Pump. By lowering the RPMs, the pool pump will consume less energy. As energy consumption goes down, the money in your wallet goes up.
What RPM should I run my Hayward variable speed pump?
Generally, I run my equipment at 1700 RPMs for 10 hours. I run this with the saltwater generator set at 50% for 10 hours. In my case, 1700 RPM’s is the minimum I can do to reliably activate the saltwater generator and filter the pool.
How many hours should I run my variable speed pool pump?
However, it is important to note that a variable speed pool pump should ideally be running 24 hours a day to ensure proper and optimal water circulation. When your pool pump is not running, the water is sitting stagnant in your pool allowing bacteria to survive and grow.
Which is better Pentair vs Hayward?
When it comes down to it, both pumps have their own strengths and weaknesses. The Hayward EcoStar has better energy efficiency and the Pentair IntelliFlo has a reputation for longevity with a proven track record. It’s a close battle between the two pumps and it really comes down to personal preference.
What is a good schedule for a variable speed pool pump?
Variable-speed filter pumps should run longer, based upon the operating speed. Most pool owners run their variable-speed pump 12 hours per day (3-4 hours on high speed for the pool cleaning system and 8-9 hours on low speed for filtration).
What is the best energy efficient pool pump?
Variable speed pumps are by far the most energy efficient pool pumps. Their magnet motor gives them a big advantage over induction motor-based single and two speed pumps.
How does a variable speed pool pump work?
At the core, variable speed pool pumps work just like regular pumps (aside from the speed options). Here’s a quick summary of the process: When your pool pump is turned on, it pulls water from the main drains and skimmer. The incoming water passes through the pump strainer basket,…
What is the price of a pool pump?
On average, a high-quality pool pump needs to be replaced every eight to 12 years. DIY pool pump replacement involves the cost of the replacement pool pump, which can run from $150 to $800 or more depending on the type. When hiring a professional, the cost includes the price of labor, which is an additional $80 to $200.
How does variable speed pump work?
Variable speed pumps are considered extremely innovative and a solution to some of the issues with single and dual speed pumps. Basically, the way they work by using a pressure sensor that detects when the water pressure is low enough for the pump to slow down.
