We are writing to inform you that Pentair pool Europe will be upgrading its single speed pumps range to IE2 (High efficiency) motors. This enhancement is implemented in accordance with the EU Ecodesign directive 2019/1781.
More precisely, effective July 1, 2023, single-phase motors with a rated output equal to or above 0,12 kW/0.16 HP will be required to correspond to at least the IE2 efficiency level. This directive will impact all manufacturers of motor pumps.
The goal of this new directive is to propose the market solutions that are using less energy.
We fully support this measure, which represents another opportunity for you to continue promoting the message of Smart & Sustainable pools.
To comply with the EU directive and meet the new energy efficiency standards, Pentair will be selling new IE2 part numbers starting May 1, 2023 once the stocks of the current part numbers will be depleted. The creation of new part numbers will help us to monitor the change but be assured that this will have no impact on our sales price applied from February 2023. The transition will be coordinated by Pentair, customers will be re-directed to new reference as the old one gets to depletion.
You will be able to visually recognize the higher efficiency pumps thanks to the IE2 marking that will be applied on their motor.
We understand that this change may require adjustments to your current ordering process, and we are committed to supporting you during these times. We intend to have a transition that is as smooth as possible for you.
If you have any questions or concerns about the new directive or the upgraded motors, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Thank you for your continued business and partnership.
