Top 3 Most Popular Pool Pumps, Honolulu, Hawaii

If you’re installing a new pool or upgrading an existing one, you may be overwhelmed by the various technology and accessory options available. M & M Pool Service is a family-owned pool maintenance and repair company in Honolulu, HI. Their knowledgeable staff says choosing the right pool pump is one of the most important decisions you’ll have to make when selecting pool equipment. Here, they explain the three most popular types. 

3 Top Choices for Popular Pool Pumps 

1. Single-Speed 

As the name suggests, single-speed pool pumps maintain one constant speed, usually 3,450 revolutions per minute. They have no extra features or settings. Most pumps older than five years are single-speed. Single-speed pumps are inexpensive and low-maintenance. However, they are the least energy-efficient of the options.

2. Two-Speed

The low settings are typically used for basic circulation and filtration functions, while the high setting is reserved for functions that require more power, like vacuuming. These are more expensive than single-speed models. However, they’re also more energy-efficient, allowing you to save on water and electric bills. 

3. Variable-Speed 

Variable-speed pool pumps feature technology that allows you to adjust the speed to the exact flow rate desired. These are the most versatile, with several speed options. They operate on a Permanent Magnet Motor, which is cooler, quieter, and longer-lasting than other motor types. Variable-speed pumps are much more energy-efficient than single- or two-speed because you can adjust the speed to pump precisely the amount required.
