How to save hundreds off your electricity bill by buying an energy saving pool pump


In households with a swimming pool or spa, the pump unit is usually the largest single user of residential electricity (about 16%) according to Australia Government figures.

With rising electricity costs, a lot of customers are looking into how to save money by changing to a more efficient pool pump as people are realising that the initial purchase price of a pump represents only about 20% of the total expenditure, and the ongoing costs of running the pump account for up to 80%.

Variable speed pumps allow you to save energy by running the pump on lower speeds while filtering the pool. It also allows you to change to a higher setting when you need to backwash, and often you will use the medium setting for running your automatic pool cleaner. On low and medium speed they also run very quiet.

These variable speed DC pool pumps allow the pool to be run as various speeds, using from just 100 watts to a full 1000 watts for vacuuming, and a mid speed 500 watts for auto pool cleaners.

Once a pool is clean, all that is needed is the water to flow through the cell housing of the chlorinator to chlorinate the pool water. The speed of the water is not important, and the energy savings for 90% of the time the pool is run, is around 90% as the power is reduced on demand and even if not run on low speed but medium speeds, energy savings would be halved.

To compare a 1.5KW pump costing 25c/kw for 8 hours a day the cost would be $3 a day or nearly $1000 a year. For an energy saving pump run on Eco mode it can cost 150w or 30c per day, so even if run 16 hours a day it would only cost $200 per year.

How do you read the label of a pump to find out how efficient it is


The rating scale for pump units is from 1 to 10. Every star on the label represents a 25% improvement in efficiency, so a 7 star pump will be up to 25% more energy efficient than a 6 star pump, and an 8 star pump will be up to 43% more efficient than a 6 star pump.

Please feel welcome to also email us a diagram along with the answers below
Using the how to measure diagram, please provide the size of your pool in metres, please provide Pool Width (A) and Pool Length (B) in metres
Please include total length (B) in metres and total width (A) in metres if you have not listed it below the diagram
Does your pool have a step? Please note if your step is at the end of the pool and not on the side, you need to include it in the overall length of the pool as they cannot add to the length of the blanket for a step, only the width*
If your pool has a step is it on the RHS or LHS when looking from the shallow end of the pool?
What cover shall we quote you on? Note the thickest 525 micron covers do last longer*
If you need a quote on a roller, which roller shall we quote? If you choose one that does not suit the size of your pool, we will quote the closest option.*

If you already have a roller, do you need the attachment kit (refit kit) to reattach your new blanket to your existing roller? Please note if you are ordering a roller it will come with an attachment kit included*
If you already have a roller, do you need an over cover to protect the blanket once rolled up. You will likely already have one, but some customers find it has worn out so they need a new one to protect their new blanket. If you need an over cover we need to know the length of the roller tube in metres. Please note if you are ordering a roller it will come with an over cover included.*
