Energy-efficient pumps capable of saving consumers thousands of dollars

SAN DIEGO – May 13, 2013Zodiac Pool Systems, Inc. announces its Jandy® Pro Series line of variable-speed and two-speed pool pumps are ENERGY STAR® qualified, signifying they meet or exceed energy-efficiency guidelines. ENERGY STAR is a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) program that helps businesses and individuals save money and protect the climate through superior energy efficiency. As an ENERGY STAR partner, Zodiac demonstrates its commitment to manufacturing energy efficient pool equipment that help consumers reduce their energy bill and is good for the environment.

Jandy Pro Series' ENERGY STAR-qualified pumps include variable-speed VS-FloPro™ and ePump™, and two-speed Stealth™, FloPro, and PlusHP series pumps, for a total of 18 certified pumps. See below for a complete list of certified pumps. Each pump was rigorously tested and proven by a third party EPA-recognized laboratory. Both variable- and two-speed pump options were submitted for testing, to help pool professionals and consumers find a Jandy Pro Series ENERGY STAR-qualified pump to suit any pool or spa equipment setup.

"We're excited to have our full line of variable-speed and two-speed pumps meet ENERGY STAR certification requirements," said Mike Giddens, product manager for pumps and filters. "This gives both consumers and pool professionals a number of energy efficient options to choose from."

According to ENERGY STAR, multi-speed pumps save energy by reducing pump speed; a speed reduction by one-half uses just one-eighth as much energy. Certified pool pumps save more than a thousand dollars over their lifetime, pay for themselves in five years, run quieter, and prolong the life of a pool's filtration system. On average, ENERGY STAR pumps are 30-72 percent more energy-efficient than a standard model. However, select variable-speed Jandy Pro Series pumps enable pool owners to use up to 90% less energy compared to single-speed pumps, and depending on local utility rates, are capable of saving up to $1,300 per year.

The pumps are compatible with Jandy Pro Series' Versa Plumb® system, a swimming pool equipment set that provides exceptional hydraulic efficiency and intelligent design elements that have resulted in one of the most energy-efficient pool systems in the industry. The Versa Plumb system is comprised of a pool pump, filter, heater, valves, salt system and sweep elbows that have been engineered to work together as a whole system. Versa Plumb offers 50% more hydraulic efficiency, saves 40% in installation time, uses 50% less plumbing pipe and fittings, and requires less horse power. The result is significant savings in both energy consumption and utility bills.
