Your inground Pool Pump is the heart of your pool equipment. If your pump isn’t running, nothing else is either. The pool pump pulls water from your pool and pushes it through the equipment back to your pool. Pumps are sized by the amount of water you have in your pool and quantity of water features you need to supply (slides, fountains, waterfalls, etc.) And, the good news? Each Penguin Pool package comes with a pool pump included, sized to meet the needs of your swimming pool.
Pentair VS Pump - $1,600 (Best Buy)
Traditional pool pumps run at one, maybe two speeds, but you aren’t able to control what speed that is or the amount of water being moved. Pentair Variable Speed Pump allows you to set the speed of the pump to allow for the amount of water you need to move for that application. Why move 80 gallons a minute when your waterfall needs 30 gallons, or your slide needs 20 gpm? This variable speed pool pump utilizes the simple fundamental law of pumps:
Slower moving pumps consume less power!
By running your pool pump longer at a slower speed you will:
- Use less electricity
- Have cleaner water
- More balanced chemicals
- More evenly balanced water temperature
Pentair’s permanent magnet motor (same as in Hybrid Cars) has many additional features that are a result of being a better pool pump. The pump is the quietest pump on the market and at low speeds, you might not even know it is on. Since the magnet motor produces less heat and vibration, it creates less wear on the pump components and other pool equipment... that means longer life and greater returns on your investment.
