The United States Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Energy Star certification recognizes energy efficient, high-performance products compliant with the latest Department of Energy (DOE) energy efficiency standards.
Hayward’s full suite of variable-speed pumps includes four models: TriStar XL, TriStar 950/900, MaxFlo VS 500 and now Super Pump VS 700. Users can program their pumps to optimize energy efficiency without compromising performance.
“I am incredibly proud of Hayward’s engineers, designers and product managers for achieving Energy Star compliance for our entire suite of full-featured variable-speed pumps,” said Kevin Holleran, Hayward’s president and CEO. “The investment in design to increase efficiency without sacrificing performance demonstrates why we continue to be the number one rated products brand amongst US pool professionals.”
Pool owners with any of Hayward’s five variable-speed pumps are now eligible for local utility rebates through Energy Star’s rebate program. By submitting pump model numbers, which will remain unchanged, consumers can enjoy savings of up to US$500. On average, Energy Star certified pool pumps are 65% more efficient than conventional models, and can, depending on region, save pool owners several hundreds of dollars in annual operating costs.
