Variable Frequency Drives
Eco-Flow-C® Variable Frequency Drive
We don’t make Pool Pumps, we make them more efficient
With more than 80 years of combined knowledge in monitoring and controlling pumps, H2flow is the only manufacturer in the pool industry that is totally dedicated to Variable Speed technology. While we cannot supply you with heaters, filters, and pool cleaners, we can supply you with a first class product and unparalleled knowledge relating to applying VFDs to pumps.
Run slower, run longer
The key to increased pump efficiency and lower energy costs is to run the pump at its lowest possible speed, yet achieve the required turnover per day – no more, no less!
Because pumps are often incorrectly sized, it is not unusual to see a pool being turned over many more times per day than necessary; every additional gallon pumped uses unnecessary energy. Centrifugal pumps use far less power when they run slower. The decrease in power is due to the Affinity Laws, and the results are staggering. For example, if the speed of the pool pump is reduced by just 20%, the energy consumed is reduced to almost 50%. If the speed of the pool pump is reduced by 60%, the energy consumed is reduced to just 6.4%.
If a commercial pool is being turned over once every 6 hours and local codes require just once every 8 hours, the flow rate could be reduced by 33%. Doing this with a control valve will reduce the energy by approximately 15%, whereas an Eco-Flow-C® will reduce the energy by at least 50%.
Slowing the pump down to achieve the required turnover rate will dramatically reduce the consumed energy, keep the filtration system working at its optimum performance, extend equipment life, and reduce chemical usage.
