The United States Department of Energy (DOE) is undergoing an energy conservation standards change for Dedicated-Purpose Pool Pumps (DPPP) due to be enacted by July 2021.
The new DPPP regulation requires variable speed motors for pumps greater than 0.711 Hydraulic Horsepower (HHP).
High efficiency variable speed motors are a must in reducing the annual cost of operating pools and spas. For homeowners to receive the best energy efficiency, a pool motor replacement in a DPPP should include a variable speed motor versus a single-speed motor. Scroll down for updates on DOE DPPP rulings.

60.0% of swimming pool construction is for new homes. Therefore, as conditions in residential construction rebounded, demand for new swimming pools also grew, albeit modestly.
Over the five years to 2022, the industry is expected to struggle to make a splash despite expected growth in residential construction. One reason for this mismatch is the industry’s very success up to the Great Recession. According to estimates from PKdata, the number of households most likely to install a pool is between 750,000 and 3.4 million, which is far below the 5.1 million homes that currently have in-ground pools. This suggests that the rapid buildup of pools during the housing bubble has saturated demand, leaving future growth increasingly difficult.
Demand for new swimming pools in commercial settings is expected to increase during the period, which will partially offset weak revenue growth residential pools.
Hot Tubs & Spas
Over the next five years, the hot tub manufacturing industry is projected to grow moderately. Since hot tubs and spas are luxury goods, consumer demand products is highly dependent on income growth and consumer confidence.
