Save with an energy-efficient variable speed pool pump

Picture
With year-round high temperatures in the Valley, it's no surprise that pools are a major cost concern for owners. Pool pumps are serious energy thief's and could cost you up to $560 annually to operate. You can reduce this expense by more than half with a variable-speed pool pump that save energy by moving water through the pool filtration system more slowly than single- or two-speed pumps but can also be set to filter quickly for more intense cleaning.

SRP's Energy-Efficient Pool Program gives a $150 rebate to owners who choose to upgrade.
