XtremepowerUS Variable Speed Pump now offers a fully variable speed pump at an affordable price. The XtremepowerUS motor delivers premium energy efficiency and programs flexibility with a digital controller mounted directly onto the pump. The XtremepowerUS Variable Speed Pump can save you up to 80% in energy costs over single-speed pumps. It also has faster payback than the more expensive variable speed pumps because it is sized to match the performance of the most common medium heat pumps

Should of purchased one of these a while ago. Very quiet as well.Old pump was running 5 hours at 10 amps. This pump in eco mode runs at .59 amps....huge difference. Mode one absolutely keeps my pool sparkly clean. More than ever before. Energy savings should be significant.
Had this pump for six weeks and no issues.
I'm an automation engineer, and I had trouble with the pump programming. fortunately, I only need to run it on manual. The pump does a super job though. It's quiet and efficient at low RPMs, and has tons of power on boost for cleaning the pool. At that price point, I'd buy it again every time.
Six months ago my 20yr old pool pump burned out. It was every inefficient sucking up 3,000 watts of power and only one speed so i had it on a timer to run 4hrs a day. Now with this new one it is using 1/3 the power at full speed. I have setup the onboard timer for 8hrs a day on "normal" speed and the rest of the time it is running on ECO mode and have the RPMs set to 1600. It moves the water around nicely and the pump has been running 24hrs a day now and i have to say the pool has stayed super clean. Chemical balance stays with in range and only have to add in the minimum amount just to keep it balanced once a week. As for energy savings, it only uses 120watts in it's ECO mode, and it is super quiet! you can't even hear it running unless you are right up on it.In normal mode i have it set at 2600 RPM and you can still hear it, but you really have to listen for it. My A/C condenser is next to it and it is louder than the pool pump. So, with only the pool pump on normal mode, and it dead quiet at night you could hear it, but it is so low that a passing car or a lot of frogs chirping away drowns it out and makes for a nice evening by the pool. Just wish it had a bit more power max PSI that i could get this to push was 20PSI and that's with all jets off and it just trying to push water. But so far so good and running nicely. Worth the cost which is half of what the other "name brand" ones were going for.Wish there was a way to control the pump RPMs externally with a relay timer, but no deal breaker as this only requires power and can eliminate the timer box as it has its own timer control.To set the RPM's it relatively easy to do. once you have it all connected up, hit the ECO button and set the RPMs, the "clean" button which should be called normal mode, and set that the same way.Next is the clock time, and then what times you want eco mode to kick in, what time the normal mode to kick in and then you are done. Once set, you can forget.---- 1 Year Later ----After 1 year of service this is still going strong! It has been running for over a year now 24/7 and my pool has never been happier. In night mode where i have it set to just 1600rpm it filters enough to get all the small stuff out of the pool and the pool has been crystal clear all year long. There is one catch though, the filter does need to be cleaned a little bit more frequently though. I pull the pool filter out every two weeks or so. Just a quick wash down with a hose and filter goes back in. doing this does seem to prolong the filter life from what i have noticed and it really is whisper quiet. We had had friends over and they couldn't that the pool pump was so quiet as compared to theirs. I sent them a link to buy this one and they all have said the same thing, nice and quiet and pool is always clean and clear. Also as a bonus the electricity bill did go down quite a bit while using this pump. I have estimated i saved about 100 or more a month running this on a schedule in eco mode over the night time hours. Very happy and well worth it to replace the old power hungry pumps.
Easy to install. I replaced the plastic wire conduit fitting, since it didn't look suitable.Mine leaked a tiny bit when first started, but hasn't since.Sound levels and energy savings are great.It has some sort of automatic shutdown function of it can't establish good flow. This i imagine will extend the life quite a bit, since a regular single speed pump has no such feature and gets damaged very quickly if it runs dry.
