These powerful products have improved over recent years and the latest variable speed options have for many, become the pump of choice for many applications.

roviding powerful circulation for pools and spas of various sizes, these extremely important pieces of equipment work away in the background of every pool and spa, whether domestic or commercial. Technological advances continue to be made with this rather unassuming (but vital) product to improve, amongst other things, energyefficiency, running costs and construction materials. With plenty of choices available from a number of brands, this issue we take a look at some of the models which will be keeping water on the move this year.

MAKE SOME NEW CONNECTIONS WITH GOLDEN COAST When a swimming pool pump needs to be replaced, installers and consumers are usually forced to buy exactly the same brand of pump again to guarantee it is compatible with their existing pipework. This can be a particular problem when a failed pump has significant issues that are well-known, as installers face a choice of either refitting the same pump or engaging in costly, labour-intensive replumbing. The Speck BADU EasyFit pump is the solution pool owners are looking for. Available Golden Coast’s GC SuperPro swimming pool pump – a drop-in replacement for Hayward® Super Pump® and Pentair® SuperFlo® pumps

exclusively from Golden Coast, the EasyFit pump is compatible with nine different pump types, with seven connection sets available to ensure complete flexibility when installing on existing pipes. “The EasyFit connection sets contain port fittings and height-specific legs to uniquely suit specific equipment, and it makes assembly quick and easy,” said Sarra Collins, Technical Sales Advisor at Golden Coast. Corrosion-resistant, reliable and maintenance-free, the BADU EasyFit consumes on average 20% less power than the industry’s leading pumps, and is suitable for pool volumes ranging from 35 to 200 m³. “Installing a new circulation pump into an existing filter can be time-consuming and problematic, but the EasyFit solves all that,” added Sarra. New for 2020 is the cost-efficient, highperformance GC SuperPro swimming pool pump – a drop-in replacement for Hayward® Super Pump® and Pentair® SuperFlo® pumps. GC SuperPro offers a range of models with flow rates of 8 to 40 m3/hr for pool sizes between 30 and 100 m3. GC SuperPro is designed with an easily serviceable 4-bolt pump assembly, and includes an integrated handle for simple transport and installation. The pump model casing has either 1.5 or 2 inch suction and discharge connections, as well as a transparent lid for quick and easy inspection. GC SuperPro is also supplied with metric and imperial connection sets.
