Guide To Best Pool Pumps for Variable Speed, Multi-Speed and Single Speed

The right pool pump is crucial for keeping your pool clean and operating efficiently. There are various options for energy-efficient pool pumps to meet different needs and budgets.

Hayward Pool Products is a leading pool equipment company in the pool industry. Here, we provide an overview of Hayward’s variable-speed, multi-speed, and single-speed pool pumps to help you determine the best option for your pool.

Variable Speed Pumps

Variable speed pumps are the most energy-efficient pool pumps available. They operate by adjusting the pump speed to match the pool’s needs. This allows them to save up to 90% on energy costs compared to single-speed models.

The main benefits of Hayward variable speed pumps include.

  • Ultra energy efficient – Saves up to 90% on energy costs compared to single-speed pumps. This can add up to over $1,500 in savings per year.
  • Quiet operation – These pumps operate quietly by running at lower speeds most of the time.
  • Advanced programming – This allows you to set optimal pump speeds for different functions like filtering, heating, and cleaning.
  • Longer pump life: Variable speed operation reduces wear and tear on the pump.

Some top Hayward variable speed pump choices are:

  • TriStar VS Pump – An ultra-efficient and fully programmable variable speed pump. Comes in a variety of horsepower sizes.
  • Super Pump VS – A budget-friendly variable speed pump with basic programming. Available in 3/4 to 3 horsepower models.

Multi-Speed Pumps

Multi-speed pumps offer increased efficiency over single-speed models by allowing you to run the pump at lower speeds for basic functions. This can reduce energy usage by up to 75% versus single-speed pumps.

Benefits of Hayward multi-speed pumps.

  • Energy efficient – Lower speeds save energy when full pump power is unnecessary.
  • Flexible operation – Switch between high, medium and low speeds as needed.
  • Quieter at lower speeds – Runs quieter when filtering or heating the pool.
  • Long-lasting performance – Designed for continuous operation at lower speeds.

Top Hayward multi-speed pump picks.

  • Super Pump – Available in 1 to 3 horsepower models. Switch between high, medium and low speeds.
  • MaxFlo XL – Extra large debris handling with up to 75% energy savings versus single-speed pumps.
  • Pro Series – Heavy-duty pump built for longevity, energy savings, and quiet operation.

Single Speed Pumps

Single-speed pumps operate at one continuous speed. While not as efficient as variable or multi-speed models, single-speed pumps are simple to use and more affordable.

Benefits of Hayward single-speed pumps.

  • Lower purchase price – Single-speed pumps are the most economical pump option.
  • Simple operation – Designed for convenient on/off control. Just plug in and run at full speed.
  • Durable performance – Built to run continuously at high speed for years.
  • Large debris handling – High-speed operation easily handles leaves and debris.
