Pool Pump Department of Energy Standards are Changing

Main Content Starts Here

PENTAIR IS HERE TO KEEP YOUR POOL WATER FLOWIN'.

The Department of Energy (DOE) Dedicated Purpose Pool Pump (DPPP) regulations began in July 2021.

With more than 8.5 million pools in the U.S., the new DPPP regulations provide considerable savings to pool owners. According to the DOE, by updating a pool pump that complies with the DPPP rules, pool owners have the potential of saving $2,140 in 12-months and improving yearly operating costs by about $550.*

To ensure Pentair pool pumps meet these new standards, Pentair was a joint stakeholder in developing the new mandate, so every pool pump is more energy-efficient, and cost-effective.
