Hayward Has Compliant Single- and Variable-Speed Pumps.


New regulatory standards set by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) affect in-ground and above-ground residential and commercial pumps above 1 HP and up to 2.5 hydraulic horsepower.


Hayward has a broad range of compliant pool pumps that meet the new standards, including:

  • All Hayward 1 HP Super Pump® models
  • All Hayward 1 HP MaxFlo XL™ models
  • All Hayward variable-speed models

Hayward has the most energy-efficient variable-speed pumps above 1 HP, according to new DOE WEF ratings.

The Truth About DOE Changes.

Effective July 19, 2021, the goal of the new DOE pool pump regulatory standards is to reduce energy usage.




Dealer Inventory not affected

  • Dealers can sell and install any pump models until inventory runs out
  • After July 19, 2021, manufacturers are responsible for producing pumps that comply with new regulations

Major Benefits for Your Customers

  • New labeling requirements make it easy for consumers to compare efficiency of pumps
  • Higher efficiency standards help consumers save energy and money

A new way to measure energy efficiency

  • Weighted energy factor (WEF) is the new standard for evaluating pump efficiency
  • The higher the WEF rating, the more efficient the pump
