Yes. Pooled Energy will install a variable speed
drive for your existing pump, which enables significant energy savings. Most pumps can be controlled by our
system. Some older pumps may not be
compatible and we will recommend replacement in such cases.
pool pumps are single speed, whose size has been selected for the backwash
task, which takes ~2 minutes every 8 weeks.
For the rest of the time, they are way over-powered for filtration and
waste a large amount of money and energy.
With Pooled Energy, the pump speed varies intelligently, as required,
for the different demands of filtration, sweeping, heating, energy prices and
Please note that filtration is more efficient and finer at low pressure and low speed than at high pressure. At high pressure, dirt particles in the water tend to shred, like Kleenex in the wash, and pass through the filter. The water then becomes cloudy with particles too tiny for the filter to remove.
