First App To Calculate Energy Savings

Hayward recently unveiled a first-of-its-kind App that allows pool owners and professionals to calculate the energy usage and potential savings of their swimming pool products.

The easy-to-use Hayward Energy Solutions Calculator App computes the estimated savings by switching to Hayward Energy Solutions products, including the vast lineup of ENERGY STAR-rated variable-speed pool pumps. Additionally, the app will demonstrate how much more can be saved by transitioning other Hayward energy-efficient solutions such as: pool cleaners, heat pumps or pool heaters, pool automation, LED pool lights or pool filters.

According to Mike Massa, Vice President of North American Sales, the app is intended to help pool owners save money and lower their carbon footprint. “Clearly, we want to demonstrate the potential savings pool owners can realize by switching to one or more of Hayward’s entire suite of Energy Solutions products. Ultimately, we are hoping to raise pool owner’s and operator’s awareness of what is possible in terms of both energy and cost savings. The Energy Solutions Calculator mobile app is a very effective tool for dealers in their stores and tradesmen in backyards.  They can show pool owners what they can expect to save with our Energy Solutions.”

The app is now available for free download at the U.S. Apple Store for the iPad, as well as at http://www.hayward.com.

To use the Energy Solutions Calculator, pool pros and owners start by simply choosing their state of residence.  The app then estimates parameters that the user can adjust to their specific situation.  These options include: horsepower of current pump; average daily run time of pool; rate currently paid for electricity (in dollars per kilowatt-hours); size of pool in gallons; and approximate length of pool season.

Using this information, the app will demonstrate how much can be saved in energy costs by switching to a Hayward variable-speed pool pump and other Hayward Energy Solutions. Users can even access a virtual simulation of the pump control panel, allowing them to adjust the pump to different speeds, further helping them appreciate the tremendous energy savings potential when running pumps at lower speeds.

Hayward’s Energy Solutions are designed to be a cost-savings solution for pool owners to replace their pool pad’s older equipment. Hayward Pool Products strives to develop products that are not only environmentally friendly but also benefit pool owners in terms of ease-of-operation and efficiency, while providing energy savings.
