Because of the weak economy, everyone is talking about 'energy conservation.' We are all concerned about the high cost of energy and its potential to increase in the near future. Consequently, pool and spa technology has become significantly more energy efficient over the past few years.
An investment in a new pump for your pool or spa will lead to considerable savings - in energy and money! A new pump will likely more than halve your energy consumption. Also, the government subsidizes the installation of new energy efficient pumps.
Further, many of the new 'intelligent' pumps are much safer than older pumps. For example, a new 'intelligent' pump has pressure sensors, which automatically shut the pump off if an object gets sucked into the pump. This technology could save the life of a friend or family member. Also, it could save your pump's life should something get clogged in the intake or return.
Calculate how much a new energy-efficient pump will save you here. You will see that a new pump is well worth your time and investment.
We also recommend that you consider installing an autofill for your pool. An autofill system makes sure your pool is always filled to the correct level. By maintaining a constant water level, you will eliminate pump burnouts, discoloration, and chemical loss.
