In July 2021, new federal regulation for energy-efficient pool pumps goes into effect, and it will eliminate the poorest performing pool pumps from the market. Compared to other home energy items, pool pumps are often cited as the second-highest usage of home energy followed by heating and cooling systems. As many homeowners wish to save energy and reduce their energy expenses, purchasing energy-efficient products, including pool pumps, allows consumers to benefit from ENERGY STAR rebates and long-term energy savings.
