Hayward’s extensive lineup of energy-efficient pool equipment and cost-saving incentives have positioned the brand as a category leader, making them the gold standard among pool equipment brands

ELIZABETH, NJ – April 9, 2019 – Hayward Industries, Inc., a leading global manufacturer and marketer of residential and commercial pool equipment was recently awarded the 2019 ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year Award by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for its commitment to energy efficiency through product innovation. This year, Hayward was honored for its leadership in the variable-speed pool pump category, as the brand offers the most efficient line-up of ENERGY STAR certified variable-speed pool pumps in the industry.

With a history spanning 80 years with products that feature advanced innovations and technologies, Hayward equipment sets the standard for superior pool products across the globe. In addition to the brand’s award-winning variable-speed pumps, Hayward’s product offerings include everything from robotic cleaners to smart pool automation and salt chlorination systems.

“Energy consumption is a major concern for pool owners, so to be recognized as the leader by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is a huge honor for Hayward,” said Scott Petty, Global Product Manager, Pumps and Filters at Hayward Industries, Inc. “We strive for industry-leading performance and reliability in every category through pioneering product designs and manufacturing processes.”

Hayward’s ENERGY STAR certified variable-speed pumps are the most efficient pumps in the industry, producing up to 90% more in energy savings when compared to single-speed pumps. The brand offers a broad selection of models to fit all pool configurations, including upgrading existing equipment or new pool builds. Pool owners often see a return on their investment with their Hayward variable-speed pump in just two seasons, through energy savings of up to $1500 annually. Hayward’s variable-speed pumps feature advanced hydraulic technologies that increase flow and enable them to operate efficiently and effectively at lower pump speeds for most of the daily cycle. Hayward pumps also offer exceptionally quiet operation, reducing noise and energy consumption, while creating a more peaceful backyard experience.

For added value, a line of Hayward’s in ground variable speed pumps, called VS Omni, come bundled with OmniHub. Hayward’s smart pool automation system gives existing pool owners the convenience of smart pool control right at their fingertips. As smart homes are now the standard with today’s tech-savvy homeowners, VS Omni offers seamless integration of third-party home automation systems, including Amazon® Alexa, Elan®, Nest, Control4® and Crestron®. Homeowners can control and monitor everything from their pool pump, heater and salt chlorination systems to water features and lights all from their iOS or Android-compatible device for a completely customizable backyard experience. Hayward also offers an energy efficient option for above ground pools, the PowerFlo® VS 300, which is the first pool pump in the industry to meet the new ENERGY STAR 2.0 specifications. Designed for maximum energy efficiency and quieter-than-ever operation, the PowerFlo VS 300 provides up to 80% energy savings over single-speed pumps, making it the ultimate energy efficient solution for above ground pools.

Hayward is also the first pool equipment brand to have recently launched the EcoRebate Finder tool to its website to further assist consumers with their energy savings. The EcoRebate Finder is a simple way for consumers to locate local rebates and incentive savings based on their location, time of purchase and qualified energy-efficient pool pump models. Additionally, a number of local power companies and energy suppliers offer pool owners sizable rebates when they purchase qualifying pool pumps, providing even greater savings.
