Poolsaver Program


COVID-19 Update

A few changes to the delivery of the Poolsaver program have been made in light of COVID-19. These changes are being initiated given the current public health environment to safeguard the well-being of employees, customers and the third parties involved in the process. The below information will continue to be updated as necessary. Please contact your poolsaver@wnhydro.com for further information.

Effective immediately:

  • Vendors will be able to market and administer the program as of March 27, 2020.
  • Vendors will be able to secure commitments from customers and start applications after March 27, 2020.
  • Vendors are encouraged to avoid in-person conversations and are encouraged to exercise social distancing.
  • Vendors are not permitted to schedule installations at customer locations – as the situation evolves, we will notify vendors of any changes.
  • While installations cannot be scheduled at this time, commitments with vendors can still be made.

Please note that the program is only available for a limited time and may reach capacity early.


Splash Into Savings

Upgrade your constant-speed pool pump to a variable speed pool pump and receive a $400 rebate through the Poolsaver Program.

The Poolsaver Program offers a great opportunity to reap the benefits of saving on electricity costs and the upfront costs of a pool pump.

How Do I Save?

Saving is easy, simply follow these steps

  1. Sign up with a Poolsaver Vendor
    Choose one of the many registered poolsaver 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.
