Waterco Hydrostorm Eco 150V | Variable Speed Pool Pump
The Waterco Hydrostorm ECO150V pool pump uses a brushless DC Motor allowing the user to change between 3 factory speeds which can then be varied by the user. Also available as a Hydrostorm Eco-V 100.
A pool filtration system does not require to be operated at a pump’s maximum water flow rate. In fact, your pool’s filtration efficiency improves at lower flow rates.
Hydrostorm ECO-V 150’s Variable 3 speed options Hydrostorm ECO-V 150 has 3 factory set speed options ECO (Low), MED & HIGH but with the additional advantage of fine adjustment in operating speed with 25 RPM increments, allowing fine tuning of the pump’s motor speed to perfectly match the flow requirements of the swimming pool, maximising energy savings and minimising pump noise. The Hydrostorm ECO-V 150 operates most economically and with the lowest noise level using the ECO (Low) speed option. The Hydrostorm ECO-V 150 has a variable speed control, ranging from 1000 to 2850 RPM (revolutions per minute). The pump’s RPM can be viewed on the control panel display.
ECO (Low 1300 RPM): Filtration
99% of the time Most economical speed for the purpose of operating the pool’s filtration system without any ancillary pool equipment attached to the re-circulation system. E.g. suction cleaners.
Medium (2400 RPM): Automatic pool cleaners
This speed will enable the operation additional pool equipment for pool cleaning functions that require the use of suction cleaners and low pressure spa jets.
High (2850 RPM): Vacuuming and backwash
1% of the time Power speed selection for use with backwashing granular media filters (e.g. sand filters), manual pool vacuuming and operating pool equipment with high water pressure requirements. E.g. water features and spa jets.

This unit with the variable speed within each setting is great to maximize the efficiency of the pool filter and pump by fine tuning the RPMs. It is using approx 1/4 the power than the single speed Waterco Supatuf 150 I replaced. Fit exactly the same as the older Waterco Pump so no need to alter any piping. I calculated it will save me $500-$600 per year running this pump 8 hours/day where as the older pump was running 6 hours/day. The staff at PoolShop were great to deal with and unit shipped and received within 2 days. They answered all my questions and were professional in every aspect. Thanks again !
excellent unit. Very quiet and at 2300(adjusted) RPM filters and drives my Baracuda cleaner.It is using a lot less power from my solar panels and batteries. It replaces an older style Hydrostorm 150 where seals were leaking water.
