The Leaf pump was designed with two things in mind: Exceptional performance and energy efficiency. Each Leaf model is variable speed. A variable speed pump is a great option for pool owners who have water features or would like multiple pump speeds to perform different tasks. As mentioned, Leaf variable speed pool pumps are capable of moving the water at more than one speed while cutting back on energy use. Not only is this better for performing different tasks, but it also cuts down your electric bill. Single speed pumps generate a great amount of horsepower, which only increases the pool pump’s power consumption.With a variable speed pump, you can run the pump for a longer period of time. Leaf pool pumps are designed to operate 24/7. This keeps the water constantly circulating so that algae and bacteria don’t have time to build up, leading to a cleaner and healthier pool. The Leaf pumps feature eight settable motor presets and 3,200 speeds ranging from 250 to 3,450 RPMs, to meet the needs of any type and size pool.
