You should take several criteria into account when you choose a variable speed pump for your pool:
- Energy efficiency: variable speed pumps are renowned for having a higher energy efficieny than single-speed pumps. They use a permanent magnet motor. This reduces electricity consumption and optimises the pump's energy efficiency.
- Programming and adaptability: they offer advanced programming options and the pump speed can be regulated to suit your pool's specific needs. Its compatibility with other equipment in your pool setup must also be considered.
- Advanced functionalities: certain models offer advanced functionalities such as Wi-Fi connectivity, which allows the pump to be controlled remotely via a smartphone or tablet. Other functionalities include automatic programming, predefined modes of operation, and flow sensors for effective management of the filtration.
- Durability: since it is running at low speed and generates less heat, the motot lasts longer.
- Compatibility: make sure that the model you choose is compatible with the other equipment in your pool such as the filter, heating system or water treatment system. Good compatibility ensures harmonious and effective operation.
