On Tuesday 27 October 2020, an exposure draft of the Greenhouse and Energy Minimum Standards (Swimming Pool Pumps) Determination was released for public comment. The exposure draft outlines proposed energy efficiency regulations that would apply to swimming pool pumps. The Determination is the first instance of energy efficiency regulations for swimming pool pumps, introducing minimum energy performance standards (MEPS) and mandatory energy rating labelling.

The report examines components of the energy rating label to determine the most effective label design that would influence pool owners to purchase a more energy efficient pool pump.

Decision RIS: Swimming Pool Pumps

This paper provides an update to swimming pool pump stakeholders following submissions on the Consultation Regulation Impact Statement (RIS) – Swimming Pool Pumps and decisions and outcomes from subsequent industry working group meetings held between June and November 2017. Topic updates include:

  • method of test
  • minimum energy performance standards (MEPS)
  • labelling products
  • scope of regulation
  • transition timeline; and
  • product registration.

The Department of the Environment and Energy seeks feedback from businesses and other stakeholders on a consultation Regulation Impact Statement (RIS) for swimming pool pumps. The RIS examines proposals to improve the energy efficiency of pool pumps sold in Australia.

This report presents the results of recent market research into pool pumps in Australia and New Zealand. It draws on quantitative and qualitative data to examine consumers’ decision making process when buying a pool pump, what are the main influences and advisers for consumers and their knowledge about pool pumps and energy efficiency more broadly.

The report also details findings from a series of interviews with pool pump suppliers, retailers, pool builders and installers.
