Pool Filter Cleaning in Plano, Texas

Energy Efficient Pumps Are Mandatory by July 19, 2021

In 2018, the Department of Energy (DOE) received a petition to issue a final ruling of energy conservation standards for dedicated-purpose pool pump (DPPP) motors. Dedicated meaning “Main Filter” Pumps used to push thousands of gallons of water, through the pool’s filter only.

The new Federal mandates would apply to both entire Main Filter Pumps (a pump and motor set) and Main Pool Filter “Motors” specifically.

Your Dedicated-Purpose Pool Pump (DPPP) motor will need to be updated with an Energy Efficient Variable Speed pump and motor (set) or a just a single Energy Efficient Variable Speed motor. The State of Texas, along with the federal Government, have reached a consensus on the Dedicated-Purpose Pool Pump Proposal in which they lay out the necessary attributes of a DPPP to be used on pools in the United States. When installing a new pump and motor (set) or single motor, It is of utmost importance that your DPPP be in compliance of the DPPP Proposal guidelines by July 19th, 2021. If your new DPPP purchase is on or after July 19, 2021 and is not in compliance, you could get a fine and forced to replace your current DPPP to a Compliant DPPP to reduce noise and power consumption. You can contact one of our DPPP professionals at Aqua Clean Pool Service. Our Licensed Electrical Technicians (TICL 568) can inspect your dedicated purpose pool pump and tell you if it is compliant or not.
