Viron Astral P520 XT Energy Efficient Pool Pump
Astral P520 Xt Pool Pumps are for large pools or applications where large water flow is required, i.e., large Waterfalls. The Astral 520 XT is a 9 Star Energy Rated variable-speed pump with a DC motor and will significantly reduce operating costs, lower noise levels, and reduce greenhouse emissions.
Energy Efficient Pumps reduce electricity usage by slowing down water flow rates for each pool application. Speeds are set to suit pool filters, plumbing, and each application.
The Astral Viron XT Pump range can control prime speed and prime duration. The XT motor allows for 30% faster priming with its 3600 rpm motor. Energy pumps also work well with robotic pool cleaners as there is no pressure on the pool filtration system, so there is no need to run the pool pump at high speed.

Purchased the pump on line from the pool shop who did a great deal.
The pump has great top end flow for pool cleaning, and is really effective with the in floor cleaning in my pool, because you can program how long the priming period goes for and the pump speed. This allows me to have the pool cleaning cycle for the first part of running the pump, and then it drops back to low for filtration and chlorination. It is also very quiet at low speed, you won’t hear it running from outside your pool shed.
Brought this pump online through the pool shop. Price installed was a lot cheaper than I could buy the pump and install it myself at home. So far I have found the following:
1 Pump is so quiet you cant hear it run, big change from previous pump that was quite noisy
2 While I ruin the pump for two more hours a day, I am sure that it is using a lot less power day to filter our pool, this should result in significant savings, I estimate a three year pay back period on the difference to have replaced the pump that was dying fast with a like for like compared to the energy efficient pump
3 There is plenty of pressure available to back flush the filter!
4 On low speed filtering water, the pool system is operating at a lot lower pressure making it less likely for piping or fitting failures to occur
5 I have been an electrician for near forty years and am impressed with the quality of the motor, think it will be very durable
Overall, happy as to date with the choice to buy this pump and also to buy through the pool shop
