A couple of years ago I replaced my failing Super Pump motor with a EcoTech VS motor. I recently installed a energy meter on my pool/pond circuit. The meter is integrated with my Smartthings hub and the charts are done using Initial State.
Pond running (24 hr/day) - 210W
Pump running 100% - 1200W (990W pump only) approx 45 gpm
Pump running 50% - 340W (130W pump only approx 20 gpm
SWG 195 W
GPM readings are from a flow-viz flowmeter.
I didn't realize how much energy the pump saves.
The top chart is my pond and pool energy usage over 24 hrs. The pump runs at 100% for two mins then drops to 50%. The SWG powers up with the pump via a relay and current switch.
On a other note, my kids left the cover open on our hot tub last night, look at the spike in energy usage on the bottom chart.
