New legislation in California, Title 20, states that beginning in January, 2008, you’ll no longer be able to buy a 1 HP or greater single-speed pump for a new pool or to replace a failed filter pump. The law will only allow two-speed pumps or variable-speed pumps. This may leave a mistaken impression that both types of pumps are equally efficient. They’re not, and a number of utilities, including Pacific Gas and Electric, have conducted testing that highlights the superior energy efficiency of variable-speed pumps.
Is this true? Has anyone else heard of this???
