New mandatory standards and labelling requirements for swimming pool pumps

All swimming pool pumps sold or supplied from 1 October 2022 will need to display an energy rating label and meet testing requirements. This will help consumers to save money by reducing the amount of electricity used by their swimming pools and to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Purchasing an 8 star pump over a 2 star pump could save a household over $540 per year.

Suppliers and retailers of swimming pool pumps may register their products prior to 1 October 2022. Products not registered with the GEMS Regulator after this date may no longer be sold or supplied within Australia. We will be working with the industry, pump suppliers, retailers, pool builders and other professionals to communicate the changes and requirements.
