Poolsaver Program


PoolsaverTM, Save on Energy Swimming Pool Efficiency Program, is back in market.

Authorized vendors can now schedule and perform variable speed pool pump installations for eligible customers. We expect that vendors will perform the necessary tasks in a way that keeps themselves and customers completely safe during the process, abiding by Ontario’s physical distancing restrictions & guidelines.

As a reminder, this program will be available for a limited time.

Splash Into Savings! Upgrade your constant-speed pool pump to a variable speed pool pump and receive a $400 rebate through the Save on Energy Swimming Pool Efficiency Program.

The Save on Energy Swimming Pool Efficiency Program offers a great opportunity to reap the benefits of saving on electricity costs and the upfront costs of a pool pump.  Most constant-speed swimming pool pumps run 24/7, often at a higher speed than necessary for the task. That's a big opportunity to save electricity!

How Do I Save?

Saving is easy, simply follow these steps

  1. Sign up with a Save on Energy Swimming Pool Efficiency Program Vendor
    Choose one of the many registered Save on Energy Poolsaver Program vendors in our region, or click here to see a list of participating vendors.
  2. Replace Your Pump
    Purchase and install a variable-speed pool pump and replace your pool’s current constant-speed pool pump.
  3. Earn Your Rebate
    Receive your rebate instantly on your invoice from your vendor.

Why Should I Make the Change?

Variable-speed pumps use up to 90% less electricity than constant-speed pumps. You can save up to $2,960 in electricity costs over the next 10 years by making the switch.
