Environmentally Friendly Eco Select™ Pools and Spas

Tron Pool cares about our planet as much as anyone. That’s why we create our Eco Friendly Pools and Spas - the most eco-friendly swimming pools on the planet. We’ve combined thoughtful, intelligent design, plus a combination of highly energy-efficient equipment choices including automatic pool covers.

 

ECO Select Equipment

These products save energy, conserve water, reduce noise, or otherwise contribute to a more environmentally responsible pool equipment system. Below are the “Eco Select™” we use:

 

Ultra Energy-Efficient Pumps

Standard pool pumps can consume as much energy as all other home appliances combined—often costing more than $1,000 per year! IntelliPro® pumps can cut energy use up to 90%.

 

Revolutionary pool pump slashes energy costs up to 90%

  • IntelliPro employs exclusive permanent magnet motors (used in hybrid cars), a fundamentally more energy-efficient design compared to traditional induction motors.
  • IntelliPro includes a variable speed motor, digital controls, and proprietary software that allow custom programming of the optimum speed per function—filtering, heating, cleaning, operating water features, and more. For most applications, the optimum speed is significantly lower than possible with traditional pump technology, so you can exploit a fundamental pump law: by going slower, power consumption is reduced.
  • The result of these combined innovations is impressive savings…up to 90%.

 

The quietest running pump on the planet

  • Thanks again to its permanent magnet motor and totally enclosed fan cooled (TEFC) design, IntelliPro is also the quietest pump ever built—at low speeds, you may not even know it’s operating.

 

Longer, trouble-free service life—greater return on investment

  • Permanent magnet motor produces far less heat and vibration than traditional induction motors. This results in less stress and wear on pump components and other equipment, too.
  • Built-in diagnostics protect IntelliPro from the most common causes of premature pump failure—overheating, freezing, and voltage irregularities.

 

Now with added swimmer safety

  • SVRS models feature a Safety Vacuum Release System that provides an added layer of anti-entrapment protection. It detects drain blockage and automatically shuts the pump off.

High Performance Heaters

Max-E-Therm ® high performance heaters offer best-in-class energy efficiency. Plus, they are certified for low NOx emissions, making them eco-friendly favorites.

 

Best-in-class energy efficiency

  • High efficiency rating makes these heaters extremely economical to operate. If your pool heater is more than 5 years old, chances are a Max-E-Therm could quickly pay for itself in utility bill savings.
  • Optimized fuel/air mix provides superior efficiency and faster heat up.

 

Certified for low NOx emissions

  • In fact, our heaters outperform current industry standards for air pollution exhaust.
  • Super-quiet operation won’t intrude on pool leisure time

 

Built to last longer

  • Tough composite exterior won’t corrode; stands up to extreme weather conditions.

Heat Pumps

When a heat pump is appropriate for your climate, it is the most energy-efficient heating option. UltraTemp® heat pumps transfer heat from the atmosphere to the pool or spa, saving up to 80% in energy costs compared to other heaters. Plus, they are charged with R-410A refrigerant, an environmentally safe, clean and non-ozone depleting refrigerant.

 

Saves up to 80% in energy costs

  • Heat pumps are the most energy-efficient heating option.
  • UltraTemp uses the most energy-efficient compressor available.
  • State-of-the-art engineering design provides improved air flow, efficiency, heat output, sound reduction and overall performance.
  • Check with your pool professional to see if a heat pump is appropriate for your region.

 

Uses environmentally safe and clean refrigerant

  • Pentair Water Pool and Spa heat pumps have been using the EPA-recognized, environmentally safe,
    non-ozone depleting R-410A refrigerant for nearly 10 years. This has allowed the UltraTemp heat pump to be awarded the Eco Select brand for environmental responsibility.

 

Built to provide long-lasting value

  • Tough composite exterior won’t corrode or fade; stands up to extreme weather conditions.

D.E. (Diatomaceous Earth) Filters

Water flows very efficiently through System 3® Mod D.E. filters, allowing the use of smaller pumps or lower pump speeds to minimize energy use. And when you rinse cartridges rather than backwash, you can significantly reduce water use, too.

 

More efficient water flow through System 3 Mod D.E. filters may allow use of smaller pumps or lower pump speeds to minimize energy use

  • Unique internal flow path ensures optimum filtration while reducing overall back-pressure.
  • Can be installed without backwash valve, further increasing hydraulic efficiency.

 

Cartridge cleaning options can significantly reduce water usage

  • When you can rinse the cartridges rather than backwash, water use is reduced by hundreds, if not thousands, of gallons per year.
  • Large-capacity cartridges provide maximum filter surface area for greater dirt-trapping capacity and fewer cleanings.

 

Durable construction provides longer service life

  • Chemical-resistant, fiberglass-reinforced polypropylene tank provides exceptional strength.

Cartridge Filters

Water flows very efficiently through the System 3® Mod Media™ cartridge filters, often allowing the use of smaller pumps or lower pump speeds to minimize energy use. And when you rinse cartridges rather than backwash, you can significantly reduce water use, too.

Rinsing cartridges uses less water compared to backwashing

  • When you rinse the cartridges rather than backwash, water use is reduced by hundreds, if not thousands, of gallons per year.
  • Large-capacity cartridges provide maximum filter surface area for greater dirt-trapping capacity and fewer cleanings.

 

Durable construction provides longer service life

  • Chemical-resistant, fiberglass-reinforced polypropylene tank provides exceptional strength.

Automatic Pool Cleaners

Kreepy Krauly Legend II provides great value and powerful pressure-side cleaning

  • No need to buy or operate a separate booster pump, which saves money and energy.
  • Front-wheel drive provides maximum traction on inclined surfaces and total cleaning coverage of pool bottom and walls.
  • 4-wheel design and wide base prevent tipping (common with 3-wheel cleaners) for uninterrupted performance.
  • Dual thrust jets for maximum power, speed and performance.
  • 60% larger debris bag captures more dirt, wider bag opening makes emptying a cinch, and new snap-lock bag provides easy, secure closure.
  • Disposable cleaner bags are available to assure that you never have to touch or empty debris again.

 

Kreepy Krauly Prowler robotic cleaners offer fast, eco-friendly cleaning performance

  • No booster pump required.
  • Integrated filter reduces run time of your primary filtration system up to 25%, saving energy use and minimizing wear and tear.
  • Plugs into a standard electrical outlet, using minimal power consumption.
  • Dual pressure wash jets lift sand, silt and algae off the pool floor and walls—including surface pores where brushes can’t reach.
  • Cleans any size, shape and type of standard residential pool in just 60–90 minutes.

LED Color-Changing and White Pool and Spa Lights

LED lights use the least amount of energy of all lighting options

  • IntelliBrite® 5g color-changing pool lights use 50% less energy than competing LEDs.
  • IntelliBrite® 5g white pool lights use 86% less energy than incandescent and halogen lights.
  • IntelliBrite® spa lights use 51% less energy compared to traditional lights.

 

LED lights are more durable and can last longer

  • Cool-running LED lights are durable, solid-state technology, with no internal f ilament to wear out.
  • Unlike many LED pool lights, IntelliBrite 5g lights continue to work even when a single LED goes out.

Automation

Our control systems can optimize energy use and equipment performance by automating and synchronizing equipment scheduling. They prevent problems and waste so you don’t have to rely on your memory or limited time clocks to operate or turn off equipment.

Automated control systems can help offset rising utility costs

  • Equipment schedules are easily altered to account for changes in pool usage, weather, and other factors that impact overall equipment performance.
  • Equipment isn’t accidentally left on for extended periods, thereby wasting energy (for example: lights, cleaners, heaters).
  • Control systems make it easier to take advantage of off-peak, seasonal utility rates.
  • IntelliTouch now has a ScreenLogic® app for iPad®, iPhone® and iPod touch®.
