ELIZABETH, NJ — Hayward® Pool Products has set a new standard in swimming pool energy efficiency with its new EcoStar™ Variable Speed Pump. It has been designed for unparalleled efficiency and convenience, making it the ultimate variable speed pump for in-ground pools and spas as well as waterfalls, fountains and other water features.

According to Hayward, the EcoStar Variable Speed Pump is the most energy efficient pump at any speed. With its super-efficient permanent magnet, totally enclosed fan cooled motor and industry leading hydraulic design, the new Hayward EcoStar is the industry's most energy efficient variable speed pump. Tests prove that EcoStar can save pool owners up to 90 percent on energy costs compared to ordinary single speed pumps because EcoStar can match the pump's flow to the pool's needs versus running at full power 100 percent of the time. This can save pool owners as much as $1,500 every year, according to Scott Petty, product manager for Hayward pumps.

EcoStar is California Title 20 compliant and fully programmable with a self-contained 24-hour clock. With up to eight custom speeds and timer functions, EcoStar can manage flow for different functions throughout the day, allowing pool owners to maximize their pump's savings without needing to buy an additional controller or time clock. For enhanced pool management, EcoStar can alternatively be controlled by a Hayward automation system such as Pro Logic®, OnCommand™, or E-Command® 4, or third party pool and spa controls without the need for additional accessories.

An exclusive integrated digital control interface rotates to four different positions or can be removed and mounted to the wall for total user convenience.

EcoStar SVRS model features an integrated Safety Vacuum Release System (SVRS) that helps prevent suction entrapment without additional devices, plumbing or wiring. It meets or exceeds all relevant ASME/ANSI standards as required by the Virginia Graeme Baker Pool and Spa Safety Act and similar state and local requirements.

Petty says, "This is the next generation of variable speed pumps, providing the ultimate energy savings opportunity, complete user convenience, quieter operation with an added layer of safety. It is incredibly efficient, user-friendly, and extremely versatile for both new construction as well as the aftermarket. EcoStar is the ideal choice for variable speed pump applications."

  • Incredibly quiet operation.
  • Automatic protection from priming failures, excessive temperatures, voltage spikes and brownouts.
  • 2" x 2 1/2" CPVC union connections make installation and servicing fast and easy.
