As a reminder, a variable speed pump, unlike a traditional pump, adapts its operating speed according to the use of the pool and its equipment. Some have pre-established programmes that can be adjusted.

The pool pump is one of the most energy-intensive items in the household (the equivalent of 7 refrigerators on average). Using a variable speed pump can save up to 90% of energy. 
 
Variable speed pumps offer many advantages 

  • Significant energy savings due to lower kW consumption 
  • Optimisation of filtration and therefore savings on treatment products 
  • Noise reduction (less than 40 dB at low speed, corresponding to a quiet room) 
  • Initial investment pays for itself in a few years (Return on investment is achieved in 3 seasons maximum) 
  • Slower filtration ensuring optimised water quality (At slower speeds the filter and automatic treatment work better) 
  • Adaptation to the needs in real time and according to its equipment 
  • Longer pump life (used at low speed, less wear) 
  • Ideal for renovation 
     

SCP offers several types of variable speed pumps from several renowned suppliers : Davey Hayward, Pentair, Super Pool 


The Davey Silensor Pro and Silensor Pro premium pumps offer 10 filtration speeds, a backwash mode, flow compensation according to filter contamination, remote control and is equipped with an RJ45 port to connect to any automation module.
