Consider the following for your next swimming pool pump
Is my current model still available?
Most people would happily replace their pump like for like if possible. The ease of installation would make this the obvious choice. If you are unsure if your faulty pump is still available call us and we will be able to find. If it is no longer made we can specify a suitable replacement.
Is there an energy efficient alternative?
Most manufacturers now make variable speed pumps. The prices of these pumps is decreasing as the market becomes saturated. With prices over ?1000 they are not for everyone. However a variable speed pump used properly could save over ?1000 a year in running cost, which means you could be saving a significant amount of money over the life of the pump. The other major benefit with variable speed pool pumps is they run very very quietly.
The principle is very simple run for longer at lower speeds for maximum savings. At the push of a button you can ramp up the speed for back washing or if you need to shock your pool.
All variable speed pumps have simple controls, so are very easy to program.
Was my pump sized correctly the first time?
