H2flow Variable Speed Drive solutions for commercial swimming pools are helping customers experience huge energy savings. The hostile environment of a pool equipment room is not ideal for a Variable Frequency Drive - unless it's an Eco-Flow-C®. In its standard rugged NEMA 12 configuration, you can be sure that Eco-Flow-C® will withstand even the most unforgiving environments.
We Don't Make Pool Pumps, We Make Them More Efficient
With more than 80 years of combined knowledge in monitoring and controlling pumps, H2flow is the only manufacturer in the pool industry that is totally dedicated to Variable Speed technology. While we cannot supply you with heaters, filters and pool cleaners, we can supply you with a first class product and unparalleled knowledge relating to applying VFDs to pumps.
Run Slower, Run Longer
The key to increased pump efficiency and lower energy costs is to run the pump at its lowest possible speed, yet achieve the required turnover per day - no more, no less!
Because pumps are often incorrectly sized, it is not unusual to see a pool being turned over many more times per day than necessary; every additional gallon pumped uses unnecessary energy. Centrifugal pumps use far less power when they run slower. The decrease in power is due to the Affinity Laws, and the results are staggering. For example, if the speed of the pool pump is reduced by just 20%, the energy consumed is reduced to almost 50%. If the speed of the pool pump is reduced by 60%, the energy consumed is reduced to just 6.4%.
If a commercial pool is being turned over once every 6 hours and local codes require just once every 8 hours, the flow rate could be reduced by 33%. Doing this with a control valve will reduce the energy by approximately 15%, whereas an Eco-Flow-C® will reduce the energy by at least 50%.
Slowing the pump down to achieve the required turnover rate will dramatically reduce the consumed energy, keep the filtration system working at its optimum performance, extend equipment life and reduce chemical usage.

The Brewer-Garrett Company is a design-build mechanical engineering firm with extensive experience in energy conservation since 1959. Our customer base is well diversified in the public, private and non-profit arena. Our success is based on our intellectual capital, as well our delivery model to our customers.
Many communities throughout Ohio are fortunate to have recreational facilities that house indoor pools. Unfortunately for these public and private institutions, swimming pools and aquatics facilities are major consumers of electricity and natural gas. With in-house engineering that specialize in HVAC, lighting, controls and aquatics, Brewer-Garrett is a reliable partner to Ohio’s public and private institutions that want to save energy and operational savings in their indoor commercial aquatics facilities.
Brewer-Garrett’s expertise in engineering / design, project management, integrated facility services and commissioning allows us to bring a turn-key solution to our customers.
With all of these resources under one roof, working in conjunction together, Brewer-Garrett has the ability to deliver energy conservation projects that contractually guarantee:
√ Energy Savings – If contractual savings are not met, Brewer-Garrett will pay the difference.
√ Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) – If there are cost overruns, Brewer-Garrett will absorb. This eliminates change orders.
√ Equipment Functionality – All upgrades are designed for comfort while maximizing efficiency.
> These contractual guarantees transfer risk that are typical to construction from the owner to Brewer-Garrett, while guaranteeing return on investment.
Brewer-Garrett is prepared to provide comprehensive energy studies to qualifying institutions, allowing both parties involved to understand the possible opportunity to save energy and operational savings. If these studies justify proceeding with an energy conservation project, Brewer-Garrett can provide:
√ Assistance in grant dollars
√ Federal Stimulus dollars
√ Brewer-Garrett is also prepared to underwrite and provide any capital dollars with a Power Purchase Agreement.
> This allows entities the ability to implement upgrades with $0.00 capital expenditure.
Today’s utility markets are in flux. Electrical cost (kWh) especially is an unstable commodity. Water and sewer are expected to increase significantly in the next three to five years. Utility costs in such institutions are typically the number one or two largest line items in their overall budgets. Opportunity exists to reduce this expense by 20%-30% in most indoor aquatic facilities. Brewer-Garrett provides no-cost preliminary studies.
