Saving Energy = Saving Money. It is a simple truth that everybody knows. However, the swimming pool pump is one of the highest energy consumers for a household, which makes every pool owner very distressed. But in no time, pool owners will be able to see a huge drop in their monthly utility bills. How could this be?
US & AUS Regulations for Energy Performance Standard
According to regulations set by the U.S. Department of Energy (“DOE”), if effective in 2021, variable speed pumps will become mandatory for powering a pool’s filtration system. Not coincidentally, similar regulations will commence in 2020 in Australia. The regulations would apply to pool pumps, requiring them to meet minimum energy performance standards (MEPS) and display an energy rating label under the Greenhouse and Energy Minimum Standards Act 2012 (GEMS).
Opportunities for Variable Speed Pool Pumps
It is not hard to see, both standards will provide very large savings for consumers. There are opportunities to increase the uptake of more energy efficient swimming pool pumps. Manufacturers will have to comply with the new regulation in order to sell their products in the U.S. and Australia. And we are confident, because we already have the best portfolio to lead this trend.
GEMFLOW VS, Cost Efficient Solution for A Better Pool Experience
Headed by 6 chief engineers whose expertise are in VFD and inverter technology, we are proud to have a strong R&D team who continuously coming up with innovative ideas. GEMFLOW VS is one of them, a different story about variable speed pool pump.
8’’ touch screen display
GEMFLOW VS is the first full touch screen VSP. The touch screen brings a more intuitive operation. With 8’’ large size display, it is easier for reading.
Energy savings up to 80%
Generally speaking, a variable speed pump can reduce energy use by about 70% relative to single speed pumps by being able to operate at a lower speed for the hours during which the pump is circulating water for filtration. But GEMFLOW VS can achieve an energy saving up to 80% at low speed. That means you can save up to 2,000 Euros in an average 5-year life span.
Reduction on sound level by 25%
In addition to saving energy, operating the pump at a lower speed reduces noise level by 25% – with a noise level 17.5db(A) lower, you don’t even notice it’s running!
Innovation is everywhere if you stay closer to your users. At Aquagem, we promise you something different. Keep it simple, smart and stylish is what we are pursuing for. A power bill doesn’t lie. You can enjoy a quiet and relaxing swimming pool experience with a GEMFLOW VS pump.
