Residential Pool Pumps Qualifying Product List

Date Published

December 14, 2018


Through the Residential Swimming Pool Initiative, CEE supports the manufacture, sale, and installation of high efficiency pool pumps. CEE has developed a set of specifications and a qualifying products list to define energy efficiency and enable initiative participants (utilities and energy organizations) to promote qualifying pool pump through incentive, educational, and promotional programs. In support of the initiative, CEE maintains a compiled list of qualifying models based on the ENERGY STAR® Product Finder database, Association of Pool and Spa Professionals database, and direct manufacturer submissions. This list is updated monthly; the most recent Qualifying Product Lists are posted on this page in reverse chronological order - newest at the top.

The CEE high efficiency pool pump specification is technology neutral and establishes tiered energy factor requirements for different speed settings. The complete specification can be viewed here

As of February 5, 2018, CEE no longer publishes the energy factor values for models that meet the Swimming Pools Initiative specification in this qualifying product list. On this date, a new DOE test procedure for pool pumps went into effect, which results in energy use reported under a new metric, weighted energy factor. The Consortium is revising the current specification and intends to move to this new metric. Product manufacturers should note that until the specification has been revised, CEE is only able to add models to the list based on energy factor data. While CEE cannot add models to our list based on weighted energy factor data, we would welcome these submissions to inform our specification revision process. 
Manufacturers can find the submission form here.
