Future Wave Pool Pump Energy Saver


Future Wave

$599.00 AUD $899.00 AUD

More Info

The Future Wave can be used with existing pool or spa pumps to drastically reduce energy consumption.

  • No plumbing or wiring required - just plug it in (details below).
  • Energy savings up to 80%.
  • Reduces noise and improves filtration.
  • Suits domestic pool pumps up to 2.2kW in size
  • Larger commercial units are also available - contact us for details.

Future Wave Typical Savings = $400+ per year

Actual savings will depend on three things:

  1. How long your pool pump is on for each day
  2. Amount of power saved
  3. What you pay for electricity

Example:

A 1.5 horsepower (1,100W) pool pump can easily be pared back to about 400W without drastically affecting circulation rates.

If it is used for 8 hours per day with the Future Wave, the savings will be $613.20 per year (based on $0.30 per kWh). 

Future Wave Installation Guide

Simply unplug your pump from the chlorinator or wall socket and plug it into the Future Wave unit as per below. There is no wiring or plumbing required. 

 

How It Works - Variable Frequency Drive

The Future Wave is a type of Variable Frequency Drive or 'VFD' that has been optimised for use with pool pumps.

VFD's essentially take in 'fixed' grid electricity and output 'adjustable' or 'variable frequency' electricity.

What this means in practice is that you can vary the speed of the motor that is plugged into it. Motor speed, in turn, is critically important because power is proportional to the cube of speed. In other words:

Halving the pump speed reduces the power requirement by over 85%

Savings Verified by Reduction Revolution

Reduction Revolution has tested and verified the claims made above.

Here is an example of how the Future Wave operates (similar power figures used in the example savings calculation shown above):

Pump operating under 'normal' Full Power mode = 1,176 Watts

Pump operating under Future Wave 'Optimum Savings' mode = 369 Watts

If you would like to find out exactly how much you have saved, we suggest using the Power Mate Lite (as above), Power Consumption Meter or Efergy Ego.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does reduced motor speed lead to increased operating time requirements?

Not necessarily. In our experience, most pool pumps run for much longer than required. As such, reducing motor speed slightly (using the Future Wave) does not mean you will need to increase run-time. In fact, in our home energy audits we often recommend a run-time of 3 to 4 hours per day in summer and even less in winter (for motors running at full speed).

What if I need to run a pool vacuum?

If you need to run a device that requires full motor suction power for a short period, simply flick the switch on the Future Wave control panel to "Full Power."

Can I connect it to multiple pumps at the same time?

(Eg. Solar heating pump as well as main filtration pump).

No. You can only connect one pump to each Future Wave unit. Generally we do not advise connecting an additional Future Wave unit to your solar heating pump as they tend to only consume around 250 Watts.

How much power is used at different settings?

Power usage can drop to as low as 10% of the pump's rated capacity. Generally, a slightly higher setting such as the pre-tuned 'Optimum Savings' is best. This video shows the relative power used at different flow rates using the 'Flow Adjustment' setting:
