Fluidra, a leading manufacturer of automatic pool cleaners and pool equipment, has updated its high performance ePump.
The product now features an advanced new motor engineered to enhance power and efficiency and make installation and maintenance easier for pool professionals.
According to Fluidra, the Jandy ePump is designed to save pool owners over $1100 in electrical costs (based on a 106,000-L [28,000-gal] pool with two turnovers per day at an energy cost of $0.195/kWh versus comparable single-speed pumps; when tested in accordance with the applicable requirements of 10 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR)while providing peaceful operation with its ‘quiet pump’ technology that controls flow dynamics within the pump to make less noise.
Equipped with one of the industry’s largest capacity smooth surface basket for reduced maintenance and superior performance, the improved product also offers greater flexibility with pool pad setup by providing a variety of installation possibilities.
Available in 2.2 and 2.7 true horsepower (THP) models, the ePump includes a quick connect port for faster installation and service, and is powered by an auto-sensing, dual-voltage variable-speed motor that automatically recognizes and adapts to 115 or 230-volt power supplies.
Further, the epump features two independent auxiliary relays, which enable it to control additional pool equipment, such as a salt chlorinator and/or booster pump, without the need for separate timeclocks.
