How to program variable speeds on your Jandy iAquaLink Pool Pump

One of the best features of the Jandy iAquaLink pool pump is the ability to program variable speeds from the convenience of your computer.

The traditional pool pump had two speeds – on and off. Today, pumps like the Jandy iAquaLink, are designed to operate at variable, or different, speeds. The truth is you don’t need a pool pump to run at max speed 24/7 to keep your pool clean. In general, you want your maximum speed during the middle of the day when the sun is at its peak and water temps spike. Your pump can and should slow down during the cooler parts of the day when the water temps lower and the cleaning needs decline.

According to the Consortium for Energy Efficiency (CEE), you may be able to save up to 83% in annual energy costs by choosing a multi-speed pump. This is because multi-speed pumps allow you maximum control over their speed, letting you program them to run at low power, full power, or anywhere in between depending on what your pool needs at different times.

Using the Jandy iAquaLink variable speeds functionality, you can set up the pump to run at a high speed (or high RPM) during the middle of the day when it tends to be the hottest. Then you can program it to run at a low speed (or low RPM) during the cooler part of the day and in the overnight.

Using variable speeds on your pool pump will increase the efficiency of your pump and save you on electricity. It will also make sure your pool water stays clean, healthy and ready for swimming.
