MEPS - Minimum Energy Performance Standards were created twenty years ago and is responsible for the development of the star rating system for technologies such as air conditioners, dishwashers, refrigerators, freezers, washing machines, televisions and cars. Pool pumps have now been adopted into this standard.
The Star Rating Index (SRI) system provides consumers with the ability to compare similarly sized pumps and allow them to make informed decisions on what pump is suitable for their swimming pool requirements and how much it is going to cost to run. The Viron P300 pool pump is the first pump in Australia to be approved by MEPS with an outstanding 8 star energy rating.
The Viron P300 pump utilises state of the art permanent magnet brushless 3 speed DC motor which has been developed to dramatically decrease your operating costs by selecting the speed appropriate to your application. Unlike conventional single speed motors, which work at maximum capacity at all time, the Viron P300 can operate at Eco, Cleaning or Turbo speeds to adapt to the task at hand reducing your electricity consumption and saving you money all year round.
With the Viron P300 installed you will have the advantage of reduced wear and tear on your filtration, allowing more efficient cleaning of your media filter. Lower flow and lower pressure during the filtration cycle extends the life of all pool equipment and reduces the lifetime operating costs of the swimming pool. The environmental savings are equally impressive, with the Viron P300 conserving up to one tone of Co2 emissions each year when compared to a conventional pump.
AstralPool is a pioneering company that has embraced the changes in society and the new star rating system for pool pumps, meeting the modern needs of consumers and reducing the costs associated with pool ownership.
