How would you benefit from upgrading to a variable speed pump for your pool?

Are you always looking for ways to improve your home’s energy efficiency? After all, energy efficiency is good for both your budget and the environment.

You may not have thought about how much energy your pool’s pump requires, but it can use more energy than you might expect.

Energy savings aren’t all you can expect with a variable speed pump, though. Here are some of the top benefits of variable speed pool pumps.

Energy Savings

The biggest reason to make the switch is for energy savings. The IntelliFlo® 2 VST, for example, can provide energy savings of up to 90% compared to a conventional pool pump.

In fact, the IntelliFlo® 2 VST Pump is ENERGY STAR® Certified, which means it meets strict energy-efficiency criteria set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy.

Depending on factors like your energy costs and pool size, a variable speed pump could save you more than $1,000 to $2,000 per year.

Aside from the financial savings you’ll experience, reduced energy requirements mean lower carbon emissions to provide that energy. You can help the environment while also saving money.

Automation That Changes with Your Needs

If you add, change, or remove water features in the future, a variable speed pump can accommodate all those changes without needing to be replaced. Paired with the right automation system, a variable speed pump can easily be programmed to provide exactly the right flow for spas, water features, filters, and more.

Conventional pool pumps may experience reduced efficiency if you add more of a workload, and adding bigger features could require upgrading to a larger pump down the road. If you think you might make changes to your pool or spa at some point, it may be worth upgrading your pump now.

Reduced Noise Means More Enjoyment

Traditional pool pumps can be quite loud. On the other hand, variable speed pool pumps are quieter than a dishwasher or moderate rainfall.

Without loud, unpleasant, or high-pitched noises coming from the pump, you can relax and enjoy your pool or spa even more.

The IntelliFlo® 2 VST Pump is the quietest pump on the planet, so you can count on the most relaxing spa or pool experience possible.


The IntelliFlo® 2 VST Pump is the only brand with over 10 years of field-proven reliability. Additionally, built-in diagnostics protect the pump for longer service life.

You want to spend your time enjoying your pool, not maintaining it. Upgrading your pump could lead to more pool time and less maintenance time.
