After owning your pool for weeks, months, or even years, you’ve already become familiar with what it’s like to be a “Pool Owner.” To help you efficiently operate your pool pump this summer, we have some tips and tricks that will simplify the process.

If you have an energy-saving variable or two-speed pump, you may be wondering how fast or slow to run it during the summer. In this article, we’ll explain why running your pump at slower speeds is more beneficial than choosing the faster speeds many pumps offer.

  1. Save Energy and Money!

No matter the size of your pump, running it at lower speeds saves both energy and money. For example, by running your variable or two-speed pump twice as long at its lower speeds, you can still save money.

  1. Reduce Noise Levels by Reducing Pump Speed

By reducing the speed of your pool pump, you can also reduce the noise associated with traditional pool pumps.

  1. Prolong the Life of Your Equipment

Slowing down the pump’s speed helps to reduce wear and tear not only on the pump but also on other equipment, such as filters, heaters, and chlorinators.

  1. Prevent Algae Buildup

Since your pool water is being circulated more frequently by the pump, you’ll be less susceptible to algae buildup.

  1. Enjoy Cleaner Water

The slower pump cycle allows for more even distribution of chemicals and the capture of unwanted particles, resulting in cleaner water for you, your family, and friends to enjoy.
