Water company Pentair has calculated that its energy-efficient pool pumps have created savings of 12.7 billion kilowatt hours (kWh) of electricity for its customers since 2005. This has saved pool owners $1.4 billion in energy costs, the company says, conserving enough energy to power 1.3 million US homes for one year.

“In addition to continuing to innovate energy-efficient pool and spa equipment solutions with our Pentair Eco Select products, we have worked to educate consumers about energy-saving opportunities. This powerful combination has helped our customers enjoy their pool while saving money,” said Karl Frykman, president of Pentair Water.

Pentair has been recognised by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as an Energy Star Partner of the Year since 2013, and was a recipient of its Partner of the Year — Sustained Excellence Award in 2016 and 2017.
