Depending on the size of the pool, to run a standard 1.5 HP 240 VAC pump costs anywhere from $1000 to $2000 in electricity every year. This means pool owners are contributing in the vicinity of six tonnes of greenhouse emissions each year.

SunSmart solar-powered pumps give consumers an ‘off the grid’ opportunity that will save more in energy costs than a 4 kW solar energy system. This is achieved mostly due to the fact that the SunSmart solar-powered pool pump system utilises high-efficiency, brushless, DC motor technology.

Brushless DC (direct current) motors are almost twice as efficient as AC (alternating current) motors, so the job of filtering with DC power can be achieved with a much smaller motor, meaning fewer panels and lower cost.

SunSmart solar-powered pumps can also be set up with the optional power transformer in lieu of solar panels. The pump will run at full speed consuming only around 500 W of power.
