Pool pumps help your swimming pool function smoothly. They keep water clean, circulate it efficiently, and help maintain proper chemical balance.

Over time, wear and tear lead to decreased performance and increased energy consumption. Regular maintenance can extend the lifespan of your pump, but eventually, it will need to be replaced.

Knowing when to replace your pool pump can save you from unexpected headaches. It might be time to plan for a replacement if your pool pump:

  • Is older than seven years
  • Has reduced power
  • Continuously makes noise
  • Gets hot while operating and shuts off
  • Hums or buzzes without starting
  • Starts slowly

When it’s time to replace yours, choose an ENERGY STAR-certified variable speed pool pump. These efficient models save up to $2,800 over their lifetime compared to a standard new model. They also run quieter and prolong the life of your pool’s filtering system.

Efficiency Smart also offers a $500 rebate on qualifying in-ground models and a $250 rebate on qualifying above-ground models.
