The more you work to live an energy efficient lifestyle you realize that saving isn’t a season – it’s a year-round event. Because your pool is a great place to start saving, we wanted to help you pump up your savings with an energy efficient pool pump today!
In 1992, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) launched the ENERGY STAR® program to help identify and promote energy efficient products nationwide. It also awards the ENERGY STAR certification to products that meet product-specific criteria. For pool pumps this means that they must be at least 30-72% more energy efficient than standard pool pumps.
You can visit EPA’s website to find savings tips, factsheets, product reviews and more on any of the ENERGY STAR product categories. You can also search and compare certified products using the Product Finder tool or use search for ENERGY STAR partners, like Pentair, with rebates on ENERGY STAR certified pool pumps.

According to the EPA, if all pool pumps sold in the United States were ENERGY STAR certified, there would be $1.3 billion in energy cost savings annually. Additionally, 22 billion pounds of annual greenhouse gas emissions would be prevented, which is equivalent to the emissions from more than 2 million vehicles!
While it’s important to have an energy efficient pool pump, it’s also important to make sure your pool pump in good working order. If your pool pump is over seven years old, it might be time for a new one. Additionally, if your pool pump is exhibiting any of the following symptoms, it’s time to replace it:
- It seems less powerful.
- It makes a lot of noise.
- It gets hot and shuts off.
- It won’t start.
- It starts slowly.
