Did you know that energy efficiency testing could mean pricing your pool pump at a premium?

For consumers, the need to save money, reduce energy use and protect the environment are more important than ever. By proving your spa or pool pump uses less energy than others, you’ll not only help consumers with these needs, but can symbolise your unit is superior by differentiating through price.

A consumer will pay more for an energy efficient pump, offsetting the upfront investment with a lifetime of slashed energy bills and the knowledge they’re doing their part for the environment. An energy star-rated pool pump can save up to 90% per year, as much as $1,500!

In November 2016, the Government proposed mandatory pool pump labelling for energy efficiency and noise, likely to take effect by 2018.

But why wait until then? Testing now will thrust you ahead of the game, allowing you ample time to make design changes. What’s more, the MEPS scheme may remove under performing pool pumps from the market in the future, so don’t wait until it’s too late!
