Do you know how much energy a swimming pool pump consumes?
If we compare several domestic appliances like a washing machine, a kitchen cooker or a fridge, a pool pump consumes as much as 7 fridges! That means that a single speed pool pump produces indirectly about 1,380,000 grams of CO2, which is equivalent to 138 trees.
The IntelliFlo can provide tremendous energy savings. When operated at low speeds its energy consumptionis reduced by as much as 80% compared with a regular single speed pool pump.
- Regular 1.5HP single speed pool pump, 3 turnovers/day, 10 hours/day and 200 days running time/year.
- 1 kWh = 460 Grams of CO2.
- 1 Tree = 10 Kg of CO2.
