"Ready or not, energy efficiency standards are changing the pool industry, and there is money to be made!" Steve Barnes, Safety and Compliance Manager for Pentair Water Pool & Spa.
Steve Barnes spoke to Arizona legislators on behalf of a new law that FORCES homeowners who have swimming pools to purchase "energy efficient" variable speed motors that will cost them nearly 4 times as much as single speed motors. That law took effect 1/1/2012. Senator Andy Biggs has been fighting to get it repealed.
