A simple, intuitive and easy to use variable speed pump from La Sta-Rite. Easy to use for programming at different speeds. The La Sta-Rite VS is a self-priming circulation pump which combines the superior hydraulic design of the La Sta-Rite VS pump with a high efficiency 1.5HP permanent magnetic motor and built-in controller, the result is a variable speed pump ideally sized for standard pools which outperforms requirements of IE3 'Premium efficiency' class. The controller features its own graphical control panel for easy programming of the different speeds.
Variable Speed Pumps - Variable speed simply means that a pool pump is capable of moving the water at more than one speed.
Historically, nearly all pool pumps sold were highly inefficient single speed models, single speed pumps have a motor and an on/off switch they are either on and pumping at one single speed or they are off.
Variable speed pumps can vary the speed at which the motor turns and so vary the flow through the pump, in doing so they use far less power and run far more efficiently.
