I've had this pump installed now for about three weeks. It is totally awesome! I programmed it to turn on in the morning for several hours and in the evening as well. After programming my pool size (16K gallons) and the number of turns per day (1) the pump calculates how slow it can run during the times I gave it. That's about 35 gallons per minute for me and at that rate the pump is incredibly quiet -- you no longer have to listen to a noisy pool pump when you're sitting outside. And it's only using about 450 watts of power -- no longer do I have to watch the dizzying spinning dials on my electric meter when my pool pump is on! I know it sounds strange but I'm actually looking forward to getting next month's electric bill! I believe this pump will easily pay for itself in under two years. And my local power company (SC Edison) will be mailing me a $200 rebate check for putting this in. I believe everyone with a pool should take a look at installing a super quiet energy efficient pump like this one.

I installed one of these about two months ago. So far I'm very happy with it. I replaced my old pump as part of a project in which I replaced all of the plumbing I could access, replacing 1.5" pipe with 2", eliminating all elbows and tees in favor of sweeps and wyes, and plumbing in a pool sweep outlet that had never been connected to the system.

I did a lot of testing with the pump and found that with my pool the most cost effective flow rate is about 24-25 gallons per minute. Less than that and the pump uses less power, but not much less. 24-25 GPM seems to be the sweet spot for my pool. You can set the pump to run at a certain RPM in manual mode, from 400-3450 RPM. Interestingly, 800 RPM used the least power, less than the slower speeds, so don't assume slower is always a better value in terms of power consumption versus amount filtered.

Every pool is different, so I'd recommend running some tests at different flow rates to see what gives you the lowest cost per gallon pumped. As I said, that's 24-25 GPM for my pool. With a clean filter that uses about 180 watts. You can set the flow rate directly in manual mode and the pump will tell you how much power it's using, so a simple watts ÷ GPM calculation will give you a number you can compare, and ideally you want flow rate that produces the lowest value.

A few things you might want to note:

- You don't set the flow rate in filter mode. In filter mode the pump calculates the flow rate using the pool volume you input, the number of turnovers you want, and the amount of time you programmed it to run. Some simple math will tell you how many hours it should run to achieve a desired flow rate.

- One design flaw I discovered is that you can't program fractional turnovers.

I have had one of these pumps for several years, which I am now having to replace.

The good:

1) very, very energy efficient; they work as claimed.
2) very, very quiet; I like this very much.

The bad:

3) the user interface on the pump to program it is quite hostile: they did not do a good job on its design. I would compare it with 20 year old microwave ovens (or Microsoft Windows....).

And the ugly:

4) My several year old pump died due to lightning damage. Lightning being random, and other items being damaged at the same time, it is hard to say if this is anything you might call a design fault, though I intend to now install a surge arrester in the pool shed.

I investigated just replacing the electronics controller which was destroyed; at > $900 for the controller (online) or > $1100 (dealer) the replacement controller is priced insanely high, which bothers me greatly; the pump and motor probably have 10 years life left on them, and to throw them out seems wrong to me. With MA offering a $200 rebate on a new pump, I'm left with little choice, and am ordering an entire new pump.

I recommend having a significant surge protector installed in your pool shed panel (and to check your grounding in your pool shed) before installing any such intelligent pump, given my experience, particularly given the high cost of repair.

I was very happy with this pump. Quiet and efficient. I usually run 25-40 gpm 24 hours a day. It uses as low as 250 watts if the filter is clean, up to 500 watts at the higher rate if the filter isn't excessively dirty. My pump is within a 400 square foot poolside garage/equipment room and is totally protected from the weather, though the room isn't temp controlled. Its been in place for 2 years. Came home the other day and noticed it wasn't running. The display was dark. Checked power, 120v to each leg. Switched the breaker up and opened up the control module (need a security torx wrench). I couldn't believe it, it was full of water. How did that happen? Its completely out of the weather. There was corrosion within the aluminum housing and some light corrosion on the exposed (back side) of the circuit board. I removed the entire housing and drained the water out of it. The unit is well sealed (gaskets over the screws and gasket over the housing, and the bottom filled with resin. There is some open exposure to air on part of the bottom side where the controller housing makes its electrical connection to the motor. I presume that over the 2 years that temperature variations allow condensation to occur and water to accumulate in the controller board housing. There is no path for this condensation to exit the housing, and no ventilation to the housing. With this design, the board will fail, its only a matter of time. This is a inherently faulty design, and your unit will eventually fail. I called the company to discuss this and to order a new board.Read more ›
