It has 3 programmable speeds that allow the pool owner to select the most efficient speed for filtration, vacuuming and backwashing. The user interface allows these 3 programmable speeds to be adjusted from the minimum of 1000rpm to the maximum of 2800rpm in increments of 50rpm.
Unlike standard single speed pool pumps which can consume over 1500w per hour the ECO can use as little as 100w per hour depending on the flow rate the pool owner requires on their pool.
The ECO pump utilises a wet end that has been made in Australia from durable thermoplastic, composite resin to withstand the harsh Australian climate. Whilst similar pump wet ends have been used in the Australian market for many years, the Noria ECO has had a number of structural improvements applied to it including:
· high strength clear lid with H profile O'ring for superior sealing
· one piece hair and lint pot for extra strength and less hydraulic noise
· heavy duty impeller with threaded metal insert
· heavy duty mechanical seal
Ideally the consumer or swimming pool technician should program the ECO speed at the optimum filtration speed leaving
the other two programmable speeds for automatic pool cleaning and backwashing. This will ensure the ECO pump saves
the pool owner the maximum amount of electricity whilst still leaving the pool crystal clear.
Another advantage of the ECO pump at low speed is that it is extremely quiet. This enables the ECO to be used during off peak electricity periods saving the pool owner even more money. Utilising night time off peak rates can increase the chlorine efficiency in the swimming pool making it a clearer, healthier environment for swimming. The swimming pool owner will have the ability to save more than $800 per year on electricity (compared to a standard 1.5hp pump running 8 hours per day on 2013 Energex QLD electricity rates) as well as be able to claim government rebates currently offered for energy saving swimming pool pumps.
