Certified Pool Pump Replacement Program
Also, as a part of the many residential programs, the LADWP offers up to a $1000 rebate to residential customers who have in-ground swimming pools filtered with a single-speed pool pump. This retrofit installation program is intended to retire older, inefficient single-speed pool pumps and motors and replace them with qualifying energy-efficient variable-speed pool pumps and motors installed by certified technicians.
This offer comes with a limited time, so we suggest you to quickly visit this LADWP site and check out whether you are eligible or not.
