• Standard pool pumps use 20 times more power than your refrigerator
• You would have to turn on 20 average light bulbs to equal 2,000 watts
• Over 10 billion kilowatt hours of energy are used by pools each year. That’s more energy than used by 11 individual states
• It takes 24 medium sized power plants to supply all that energy
• Pools are responsible for 10 million tons of C02 emissions each year. That’s equal the emission of 1.3 million cars.
• Homes with pools consume 67% more energy than homes without pools
Pumps help us sanitize water, dispense chemicals, and maintain healthy water. They circulate an average of 18,000 gallons of water each and every day. The average person drinks just 15,000 gallons of water in their lifetime. The pool pump hasn’t changed much in about 50 years. Until now.
EcoPump is a whole new kind of pool pump – it’s the world’s first pump to give more and take less. Capable of running on just 1/3 of a kilowatt, EcoPump delivers the highest ROI of any pump available today. EcoPump uses 85% less energy which can save up to $1,000 per year on electric bills.
EcoPump is made technically possible by EcoBoost™. Advanced phase-shifting condensers store and release energy 120 times per second. When the motor rotates in the optimal position, the stored energy is released, boosting energy transferred to the impeller. The voltage across the first electrical winding is an ideal 90 degrees from the second winding. The result is an inherently smoother motor which runs cooler and lasts longer.
The Affinity Law of Fluid dynamics tells us that a small reduction in speed gives you a big reduction in energy use. EcoPump’s multi-speed motor moves water at the ideal speed for optimal efficiency. EcoPump normally operates in EcoMode for basic circulation. Moving water slightly slower greatly reduces friction and energy use. When it’s time for a high flow task like running a pool cleaner, EcoPump can quickly shift into high flow mode.
The shaft seal of any pump has an important job – to create a water tight seal around a shaft that’s rotating up to 3,600 times per minute. The seal must also resist heat, chemicals and even salt water. Standard pump seals made with plastic and rubber don’t hold up well under high temperatures and abrasive salt water. That’s why shaft seal failures are the number one cause of pump failure.
EcoPump engineers developed PermaSealTM, a remarkable self-lubricating shaft seal designed for dramatically longer life. The first side of PermaSeal is a finely polished technical ceramic. Second only to diamonds in hardness, technical ceramics resist heat, chemicals, and friction. The ceramic surface glides on a self-lubricating carbon graphite surface, providing a permanent reservoir of lubricant. Standard rubber was replaced with chemical and heat resistant Viton, a material that retains elasticity indefinitely, even at temperatures up to 600 degrees.
It’s no secret that moving water is healthy water. Some pool owners have reduced their pump run time to just 4 – 8 hours per day to try and save money. 16 hours of stagnant water creates a breeding ground for bacteria and algae and increases chemical demand. Since it’s impossible to feed chemicals when the pump is off, all chemicals must be released over a short time, causing chlorine levels to fluctuate wildly. EcoPump circulates water 12 to 24 hours each day which is perfect for slow chlorine release and highly stable chemical levels. EcoPump is so affordable, many owners run EcoPump 24/7.
Replacing your old standard pump with EcoPump is quick and easy. EcoPump connects to your existing water and electrical connections. EcoPump is fully compatible with all three methods of pump control: a simple 3-way switch, a digital timer, a mechanical timer, or an advanced third-party automation controller.
EcoPump engineers have created the most quiet Pump in Its Class. Regular motors are noisy because they vibrate at 120 Hz when operated on a 60 Hz power. EcoPump’s phase-shifting technology allows the motor to run so smoothly that it’s virtually silent during circulation.
EcoPump is engineered for Reliability and long operating life. The most common pump failure points have simply been eliminated allowing EcoPump to offer a 3 year warranty rather than the typical one year with most pumps. Three years is not an upgrade or an extended warranty. It’s standard.
Every EcoPump also includes a Premium Service Plan. Some pump makers will have a third-party repairman attempt a field repair. In too many cases, you end up with lengthy delays as you wait on scheduling and parts. In the event that an EcoPump were to fail, a replacement can be shipped in just 24 hours. If you choose the Advance Replacement option, the replacement pump can ship before the original pump is returned.
Investing in a new pool pump is the single easiest way to reduce your home’s energy use. If you’re considering upgrades, EcoPump has a higher ROI than all energy efficient appliances combined!
To design an energy efficient pump with phase-shifting technology would define you as an innovator. To design a pool pump that uses 85% less energy would define you as a true leader. And if that pump were priced starting at only $755, that would make you the creator of EcoPump.
