HOW IT WORKS

The pool pump’s impeller facilitates a pull/push movement of water through the pump and out into the filtration system before sending it back to your pool.

  • 1 Motor speeds ranging from 600 RPM (revolutions per minute) to 3,450 RPM turns the impeller
  • 2 The impeller pulls water from the pool into the pump
  • 3 The water first passes the strainer basket for pre-filtering
  • 4 Water is then pushed out of the pump by the impeller and into the filtration system before it is returned to the pool

Compare Swimming Pool Heat Pump Energy Efficiency

When you consider adding a heat pump to your pool you also want to consider the total efficiency of the heat pump you are adding.  This is a very important step as this could be the difference is saving money vs. spending more.  While we can agree that a pool heat pump is a worthy investment as it gives you longer swimming seasons and  ultimately leading you to use your pool and exercising that investment as well as making it worth it in the long run, there are a few things that you should know.  We found a great article to share with you to help you understand the importance of knowing the efficiency of a pool heat pump before it is installed.

Keeping the 15,000 to 20,000 gallons of water in the average residential swimming pool at a comfortable temperature is a big job. For the homeowner, it’s crucial to do it in an energy-efficient, affordable way. The old-school, natural gas heaters typically offer efficiency ratings no higher than 75 percent. That means fully one-quarter of the heat produced by the gas is lost in the combustion process and does not contribute to heating water. Heat pump technology developed to efficiently heat and cool homes is a natural match for use in heating swimming pools. Heat pumps produce heat by moving it from one place to another, not by combustion. This allows more efficient heating with less heat loss and zero on-site combustion by-products or greenhouse gases. The criteria for evaluating the efficiency of various heat pumps differs from natural gas pool heaters.
