For illustration purposes only. Payback period will vary depending on model selected.

Calculations based on $800 purchase divided by $296 electricity savings = 2.7 year payback.
If replacing a failed pump, calculations are based on $800 purchase less $450 (cost to purchase a single-speed pump) = $350 divided by $296 electricity savings = 1.2 year payback.
