Maximum Speeds + Maximum Efficiency

It's a fact. Pool pumps consume electricity at a rate that is second to only air conditioning units. Fortunately, Leaf Pump technology is helping pools enter a new era of energy efficiency. "Efficiency" pool pumps of the past required nearly 2,000 watts of power. Enter the digital variable frequency drive (VFD) - the cutting-edge technology behind the Leaf Pump. Leaf Pump features an industry proven 3-Phase AC motor like those used in electric cars. 3 phase motors have inherently higher efficiency, superior starting torque, and superior reliability. Now you can select the optimal flow rate from 3,200 speeds - a feature that helps Leaf save up to 90%.

Intelligent Design + Best in Class Warranty

First generation variable speed pool pumps have onboard VFDs that are mounted directly on the motor. But reliability suffered as heat, moisture and vibration did a number on sensitive electronics . [Google variable speed + poor warranty + unrepairable] Leaf Pump's blueprint doesn't look like anything that has come before - a top rated, remote located VFD. Unlike other variable speed pumps, Leaf Pumps are protected with a 3-year best in class warranty.

Location = Longevity

Mounting your pump's microprocessor on top of your motor would be like mounting your car's microprocessor on top of it's motor. Best practices in industry require that VFDs are remotely mounted. Every Leaf Pump features a VFD totally enclosed in an outdoor rated NEMA enclosure for maximum protection, superior cooling and longer life. Sensitive microprocessors are protected from the heat, moisture, and vibration of the motor. Leaf Pumps may cost a bit more , but the performance, warranty and peace of mind are unmatched.

Leaf Pump features a time tested and proven 3-Phase AC motor like those used in electric cars. 3 phase motors have inherently higher efficiency, superior torque, and improved reliability.
