Get ‘Smart’ with a pool pump that saves energy

By Hawaii Renovation Posted in: EnergyExterior

RevoluSun Smart Home can help you transform your backyard pool into a quiet, safe and cost-effective oasis. A holistic approach that includes energyefficiency at the home’s foundation is what makes a smart home. RevoluSun, Hawaii’s leading provider of solar and “Smart Home” technology, is now adding IntelliFlo pool pumps to the company’s many “Smart Home” products available directly to homeowners and homebuilders. Standard pool pumps can be one of the largest energy consumers of all home appliances, often costing homeowners over $1,000 per year to operate. IntelliFlo pool pumps can often cut that energy use by 60 percent or more, and provide a safety mechanism that shuts it off, should anything get caught in the pump.

“We chose to carry IntelliFlo pumps because it’s the only thing that pays for itself faster than PV,” said RevoluSun Smart Home general manager David Gorman. “It’s the most reliable of the variable speed pool pumps on the market. The way it works is unlike a standard pool pump that’s either on or off; it is programmable and can run at different speeds, like a 10-speed bicycle. Therefore, it can run at a lower speed for a longer period of time. It uses much less electricity that way, and when programmed correctly, can even result in a cleaner pool. Lastly, and equally beneficial, this pump is whisper-quiet, a welcome change to the traditional pool pump, which can make quite a racket.”

IntelliFlo Variable Speed pumps combine variable drive technology, onboard digital intelligence and permanent magnet motors (the same used in hybrid cars) to reduce pump-related energy costs by up to 90 percent. The new IntelliFlo VS+SVRS model is the first swimming pool pump to feature a built-in Safety Vacuum Release System that detects drain blockage and automatically shuts the pump off. Installation is simple and can be done in less than two hours. Hawaii Energy also provides a $150 rebate.
