Types of Pool Pumps

Here at Keith Zars Pools, we have customers who have two different types of pool pumps: variable speed pool pumps and single speed pool pumps. What kind of pump is your pool equipped with?
Let�s look at some of the differences between the two pool pumps.

Single Speed Pool Pumps

Single speed pumps are exactly what they�re named� They are only able to run on one speed, no matter what cycle your pool is in.

Variable Speed Pool Pumps

Variable speed pumps, on the other hand, allow you to adjust the speed depending on the pool cycle. For example, if your pool is in its cleaning cycle, the pump needs to use more energy in order to move and circulate water through the system properly. However, during a heating cycle, the pump does not need to use as much energy.
Due to this ability to change speeds, variable speed pumps are known to reduce energy costs by up to 90 percent. That�s a lot of money back in your pocket!

Of course, the up front cost of a variable speed pool pump is slightly higher than that of a single speed pool pump, but because of the savings on energy costs, you will likely make up the difference within one to two years.

o, what type of pump is your pool equipped with? Is it time for an upgrade?

Contact our Customer Care department if you would like to learn more about changing your single speed pool pump to a variable speed pool pump.

What Happy Customers Are Saying About Us

We had a cocktail pool installed by KZP and the pool turned out fantastic. We received quotes from two other pool companies, and while KZP was the higher, they were also the only ones willing to work with our custom design. They use top-quality materials and offered a huge selection of pool fittings/finishes. Kent Ely in sales was easy to work with and was pressure-free at making the sale. Bill Sturgis was our site supervisor (we didn't see him very often but was very responsive to email, phone calls, or text messages). Elizabeth, in the design department, was fun to work with while we picked color scheme and tiles. They had a very small space to work with and they did what they had to do to make it work. I would recommend KZP to anyone.

We are very excited to start using our Kieth Zar's pool this summer. They turned our backyard into our dream. Tony came out and answered all our questions on the initial visit, and measured everything in our backyard, including trees. He returned the next week with an outstanding design on paper and a 3-D model on the computer that made it come to life. We had some delays and struggles with HOA, but knowing that Zar's was in our corner and doing all the work to get everything approved, we had no worries. Work was completed on schedule, even with weather delays. John and Toby walked us through and answered all our questions along the whole build process. We also know we can still call with any more questions we have along the way, even though the job is complete.
