UES Energy-Efficient Pools

Receive a UES instant rebate of $200 on the purchase of an ENERGY STAR® qualified variable-speed pool pump and enjoy a refreshing dip in your energy expenses.

Standard pool pumps operate at speeds that cannot be adjusted to your pool's needs. They simply run at the same high speed all the time, wasting energy and money. Variable-speed pumps can be programmed to operate at the right speed for the right task, which saves you energy.
