    Nidec/U.S. MOTORS pool pump motors designed for easy servicing, energy efficiency

    ST. LOUIS, MO – Dec. 19, 2022 – Pool and spa service professionals can get a close-up view of Nidec Motor Corporation’s lineup of high-efficiency pump motors at the Northeast Pool & Spa Show, January 24-26, at Booth #3433.

    Nidec/U.S. MOTORS is a trusted, reliable brand among pool and spa pump motors. The company’s newest product, the Neptune® variable speed motor, can help reduce utility expenses associated with operating a swimming pool by up to 80%. If the pool owner has a functioning pump, however, they do not need to replace the entire pump in order to save energy. By investing in a more efficient motor, the customer will gain all the variable speed efficiencies and savings.

    The Neptune will integrate with any new pump or existing pump, bringing variable speed capabilities to the pump and meeting U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) efficiency requirements. The motor also has the ability to connect with time clocks and automation, which is driving a lot of interest in this motor. 

    U.S. MOTORS will also feature the Aqua-Shield Pro® at the trade show. This line of pool pump motors is designed with service professionals in mind. Easy to install, with a top mounted conduit box and simple voltage switch from 115/208-230V, this finned aluminum, totally enclosed fan-cooled motor is built with additional layers of protection against moisture, heat and debris which can cause damage to motors and windings. Extra protection means longer motor life and happier customers.

    Pool and spa motors from U.S. MOTORS are available exclusively through pool industry professionals and distributors.  Find out more at www.usmotors.com/pool-and-spa.
