Upgrade Your Pool Pump, Receive a $400 Rebate

Variable speed pump

The local hydro utility companies implemented a new program, and you can get a $400 rebate from it!

If you upgrade your existing single speed pool pump to an approved variable speed pump, the utility will issue a $400 instant rebate at the time of purchase.


And on top of that, by upgrading to a variable speed pump, you save on your hydro bill because the new pump uses less energy.

Out with the old, in with the new

Back Yard Pool

Most pools use single speed pumps. ½ hp pumps were standard at one point, until pool companies started installing 1 hp and 1.5 hp pumps on pools.

The only problem is these single-speed pumps run at the maximum for 24/7.

A lot of families put their single-speed pumps on a timer, but it still has to run for at least 16 hours a day to turn that water over a couple of times.

That’s important to ensure your water is clean and safe.

Then two-speed pumps were introduced, more efficient than the single speed but not as good as a modern variable speed pump.

How much can you save with a variable speed pool pump?

Using a variable speed pump, you could save 1762kWh annually – or about $296 in energy costs every year.

$400 rebate

Over ten years that’s $2960*.

Toronto Hydro, Oakville Hydro, Milton Hydro, Burlington Hydro, and Halton Hills Hydro implemented a program called POOLSAVER in 2017.

If you purchase a new variable speed pump you are eligible for a $400 instant rebate, issued to you by the pool dealer at time of purchase.

The program was so successful, it was extended into 2018.

The only requirements are:

  • You replace a single-speed inground pool pump.
  • You are a customer of one of the participating hydro companies.
  • The pump must be installed by a pool professional.
