Leisure Time Energy Savings

Going Green

Saving Energy = Saving Money

Variable Drive Pumps

Standard pool pumps can consume as much energy as all other home appliances combined – often costing more than $1,000 per year! IntelliFlo® and IntelliPro® Pumps can cut energy use up to 90%, saving $620 to $1,360* in utility costs annually – more where rates are higher than average.

Energy Savings

Here are realistic estimates when comparing IntelliFlo or IntelliPro pumps to a traditional pump running between 6 and 12 hours per day at various utility rates (in dollars per kilowatt hour [kWh]) in a 20,000 gallon pool.

  • At $0.15/kWh estimated savings range from $620 to $1,360 per year.
  • At $0.20/kWh estimated savings range from $825 to $1,810 per year.
  • At $0.30/kWh estimated savings range from $1,240 to $2,710 per year.

Heat Pumps

UltraTemp® and ThermalFlo® heat pumps transfer heat from the atmosphere to the pool or spa, saving up to 80% in energy costs compared to other heaters. Plus, the are charged with R-410A refrigerant, an environmentally safe, clean and non-ozone depleting refrigerant.

Cartridge Filters

Water flows very efficiently through the System:3® Mod Media™ and Clean & Clear® Plus filters, often allowing the use of smaller pumps or lower pump speeds to minimize energy use. And since customers rinse cartridges rather than backwash, they significantly reduce water use too.

Automated Color-Changing and White Lights

LED (Light Emitting Diode) pool and spa lights are the most energy-efficient pool and spa lighting option available. Plus, they ca last longer, minimizing replacement cost and disposal.

Automation

By automating and synchronizing equipment scheduling, control systems can optimize energy use and equipment performance, while preventing problems and waste when users rely on their memories or limited time clocks to operate or deactivate equipment.

Automatic Chlorine Generator

Use only natural salt, the IntelliChlor® automatic chlorine generator creates pure chlorine in the pool and eliminates the need to buy, store, and add harsh chlorine product manually. In effect, fewer resources are used in the production, packaging and transportation of these chemical compounds.

Automatic Pool Cleaners

The powerful Kreepy Krauly® Legend® II pressure-side pool cleaner and Kreepy Krauly® Prowler® robotic cleaners provide highly energy-efficient cleaning performance.
