Make a savings splash! Upgrade your pool pump with a $400 rebate.
Most constant-speed swimming pool pumps run 24/7, often at a higher speed than necessary for the task. That's a big opportunity to save electricity!

Get a $400 rebate
when you replace a constant-speed pump with a variable-speed pool pump.

Rebate will be applied at the time of purchase

Pump must be purchased from and installed by a participating vendor
