Waterco Hydrostorm ECO-V variable-speed pool pump
Waterco has unveiled its most energy-efficient variable-speed pump, the 8 star energy-rated Hydrostorm ECO-V. Not only does it claim to use over 80% less electricity than a regular pool pump, it also enables the speed to be finetuned for different flow requirements.
The pump is equipped with a variable speed motor, which means it can be set at a low, energy-saving flow rate for everyday filtration. High speed gives the power needed for vacuuming and backwashing, medium speed is suitable for suction pool cleaners, while ECO speed is a low, energy-saving speed for everyday filtration.
In addition, the pump gives the owner the ability to finetune the pump’s motor speed with 25 rpm increments, maximising energy savings and minimising pump noise.
The pump is said to be one of the quietest pumps available, operating at just 62 decibels. It means pool owners can take full advantage of cost-effective, off-peak electricity tariff periods overnight. The pump is also weatherproof, corrosion resistant and incorporates a motor protection bracket.
