The energy star pool pumps program is great news for both pool builders and consumers. It will “raise the bar” so to speak for manufactures to ensure that they are producing energy efficient pumps for swimming pools, rock pools, and so on.
Standard pool pumps can consume as much energy as all other home appliances combined which often costing more than $1,000 per year!
If you build a pool with Rock of Ages, we don’t “cut costs” when it comes to your pumps. You’re sure to get an energy efficient Pentair pool pump, likely the IntelliFlo® or IntelliPro® pumps which can typically cut energy use up to 90%, generally saving up to $1,500 in utility costs annually and even more where rates are higher than average.
