Variable speed pumps are not just a new trend; for today’s pool owners, they’ve become the expectation. Many pool owners tell us they are considering adding variable speed pumps (VSP) to their pool setup for the coming pool season. They’ve heard the advanced VSP technology saves energy and money. This fact alone makes it worth a trip to see their local pool pro.
But not everyone is familiar with how they work and why their advanced design is far superior to standard single speed pumps. Before you choose your next pool pump, you’ll want to get the facts. Let’s explore the features and benefits of variable speed pumps.
What is a variable speed pool pump (VSP)?
If you’re wondering about variable speed pumps, this is a great place to start! The pump is the heart of your pool’s circulation system, circulating water and chemicals for a healthy, attractive pool experience. Most older pumps run 100% of the time. In contrast, variable speed pumps respond to the load of the pool by running only when needed.
It’s similar to leaving the lights on in your house all the time versus just having them on when you’re in the room. You can imagine the resulting energy savings. This is why utility companies and the US Energy Department are encouraging pool owners to switch to variable speed pool pumps. But, there are other benefits as well.

Running pumps at lower intervals has multiple benefits:
