Make a Savings Splash with a New Pool Pump.

ENERGY STAR® certified pool pumps save money, save energy, and protect the planet.

Pull the plug on your home’s number 2 energy drain.

Your pool pump could be your home's second largest energy user, adding an about $500 every year to your energy bills. ENERGY STAR certified pool pumps use up to 70% less energy than standard pool pumps, costing up to $250 less to run each and every year.

The big savings mean you’ll see the payback on the additional investment in an ENERGY STAR pool pump in about two years.

With ENERGY STAR certified pool pumps, smarter tech runs deep.

Choose a reliable two-speed model, or save even more with variable-speed technology. ENERGY STAR pool pumps save energy by adjusting to the task. More power for pool vacuuming, less for filtration.

We could save billions in energy bills every year.

If all our pool pumps were ENERGY STAR certified, Canadian families could save $165 million in energy costs every year. The energy savings would help protect the planet by annually preventing greenhouse gas emissions equal to more than 250,000 cars.

Time to take the plunge?

Learn the signs that your old pump may be ready to come up for air. If your current pump shows these symptoms, it could be time to call a pool services contractor.
