A pool filtration system does not require to be operated at a pump’s maximum water flow rate as with the use of a conventional pool pump limited to one speed. In fact, your pool’s filtration efficiency improves at lower flow rates.
As a pool’s filtration cycle occupies 99% of the run time of a pool pump, you can operate the Hydrostorm ECO-V on its low (ECO) speed setting for a majority of its running time, leading to a potential 82% savings in energy.
Equipped with the very latest variable 3 speed permanent magnet brushless DC motor, Hydrostorm ECO-V is capable of lowering its motor speed, reducing water flow and lowering its energy consumption.
Variable 3 Speed Options Hydrostorm ECO-V’s 3 speed options cater for most pool functions.
High speed - Vacuuming and backwash – 1% of the time
Medium speed - Automatic pool cleaners
Low speed - Filtration – 99% of the time
Hydrostorm ECO-V has 3 factory set speed options ECO (low), MED & HIGH but with the additional advantage of fine adjustment in operating speed with 25 RPM increments, allowing fine tuning of the pump’s motor speed to perfectly match the flow requirements of the swimming pool, maximising energy savings and minimising pump noise.
Benefits of Slow Flow
Lowering a pumps flow rate not only significantly decreases the pump’s energy requirements, but also reduces water flow resistance in your pool equipment and plumbing. Even though you may need to operate the Hydrostorm ECO longer, it is far more efficient pumping low water flow compared to high water flow.
A slow flow rate also has the added benefit of improving your pool’s filtration efficiency, enhancing the clarity of your swimming pool water. Plus your automatic chemical dosers and salt chlorinators are also more effective when the pool water is circulated longer.
Hydrostorm ECO-V operates most economically and with the lowest noise level at its low speed setting. Its low speed setting significantly reduces the pump’s vibration, motor noise and water turbulence to an ultra low 62 decibels (dBA).
Its low noise levels enable it to be operated at times that are not allowable for conventional pool pumps. A Hydrostorm ECO-V allows you to take advantage of off-peak electrical tariff periods, without upsetting your neighbours.
