Hayward Holdings, Inc. announced that the Consortium for Energy Efficiency (CEE) recognized Hayward’s award-winning TriStar family of pumps for their advanced control and unparalleled efficiency. 

Judges of CEE’s 2021 Integrated Home Competition recognized the VS Omni 900 and VS Omni 950 from Hayward’s flagship TriStar pump line as top honorees in the Connected Pool Pumps category.

The annual Integrated Home Competition recognizes residential consumer products that display outstanding performance in energy efficiency, demand flexibility, consumer amenity and security. 

The judging panel included several leading experts in usability, interoperability, product installation, technology performance, sales and design.

Matt Kimball, Hayward VP of Product Management and Marketing, accepted the award on Hayward’s behalf at the recent PSP/Deck Expo in Dallas.

“The awards for the TriStar VS have piled up over the last year, but CEE’s is definitely huge,” said Kimball. “The future of the smart home is in the backyard. We couldn’t be prouder that we have earned this recognition as a leader.”

TriStar VS Omni controls a full range of pool equipment, giving users the ability to adjust speeds, change temperatures, power lights and more with the touch of a button. 

The customizable control of TriStar VS Omni pumps has allowed the model line to make a significant statement within the industry in terms of energy efficiency. 

While all Hayward ultra-high efficiency pumps deliver exceptional energy savings, TriStar VS pumps have a record-breaking 12.9 on the Department of Energy’s new Weighted Energy Factor (WEF) scale. Hayward’s nearest competitors have only achieved a score of 6.9.

The CEE award is the latest high-profile commendation Hayward pumps have earned since their debut. They were also awarded the 2021 ENERGY STAR® Award for Excellence in Product Design in April 2021. Hayward variable-speed pumps have saved a cumulative 1.1 billion kilowatt-hours of energy since 2018.
