Your pool pump's job is to circulate water. This not only keeps the water moving (which algae hates), but also pushes the water through your filtration system, eliminating particle debris and other contaminates. To do it's job correctly, it's important to make sure your pump is the right size for your pool. If you get a pump that's too small, it will struggle to circulate your water, leading to inefficient use of energy, as well as risking algae growth. A pump that's too big for your needs may produce pressure greater than your plumbing or filter can handle, which can lead to damage.
Variable-Speed pumps, which are designed to perform at lower speeds over longer periods of time, are both much more energy efficient, they are often much quieter than the pumps they replace. Variable-Speed pumps are so efficient, that many municipalities offer energy rebates for their installation! Both Jandy and Pentair have also earned Energy-Star certification for their variable-speed pumps, further demonstrating their efficiency.
