Barbasked

I already have a 3 speed zodiac pump which I run during the day as I have solar panels. I’m considering buying a zodiac AX10 and am wondering if it will work on the slowest pump setting. I’d appreciate any advice you can provide

Martin Sasked

Hi. Just installed the E3.
It primed as it should then automatically switched to Eco mode. 1400 appears on the read out. This lasted for @30 seconds. Now nothing at all. The motor is not spinning.
So electronically the display looks fine but the motor does not spin.
Any ideas?

My zodiac flopro e3 has started to rattle. Have had it for 5 years. What can we do to avoid having to buy a new one? Surely at the price they should have a longer life than this?

I'm still running it on 2x3 hours on Eco mode as I was in winter. Pool looks fine. I live in the Newcastle area - it may be different if I lived further north.

They say between 8-10 hours for summer conditions

Hi, Each Pool and conditions are different. It is best to trial your Pump to see what works best for you, Thanks.

Needed some advice on the most efficient pool pump that's reasonably priced and lowest running costs. Thank you

I did an enormous amount of research into this. It's not that simple as you have to make sure local people can service them if they need it, and getting parts etc..
I guess in the end I went for the Zodiac as it seemed the most popular and familiar to everyone as well as efficient and cost worthy. I came close to purchasing a German made pool pump that had a very good track record and seemed very energy economical but no one had heard of it and getting parts etc... made me nervous.
My electricity bill has come down with the Zodiac, and we run ours mostly on medium, not even the lowest setting. We have to do this as a pool cleaner needs the medium setting to really work properly.. in winter I run it more on low for the power advantages. Overall we are pretty happy so far [ its been a year now] with the Zodiac.

Thanks so much for sharing! I really appreciate your help. I am also considering the zodiac : it looks very expensive though and I am wondering whether there is a close alternative?? Any ideas? What came second in your search other than the German version?

Hi my pump was installed on the "boost" setting so I called Zodiac and they said that if I didn't have an automatic cleaner I should try running it on the "eco" setting. Since changing the setting I have saved 42% on my power bill (previous bill was $517, current bill $295) so I'm very impressed. Not sure how it will go in summer. I may have to run it longer. Hope this helps.

Sorry I can't answer that. I do know that our auto vacuum cleaner does not work unless on medium because it doesn't have enough guts.
Maybe ring zodiac for advice

Hi there. The E3 always starts in Priming Mode. You are also unable to change the Priming RPM's. Thanks!

Hi,i have a 65,000 L pool and i run it for 8 hrs.per day in summer/8mths. with clorinator and pool cleaner would i still save energy costs installing an energy saving pump as i have read that it would have to run at high speed to work well.

Mick the poolguy

You will save money, as running a variable speed pump at lower rpm means that it is drawing less current, and is more efficient. The idea is that the low speed provides just enough water flow to keep chlorinators and dosers happy and functioning, while the filtration is better, as the water spends more time travelling through the filter (because lower flow also equals lower speed).
The thing that a lot of sales people and manufacturers forget to tell customers is that to compensate for the fact that there will be less water being pulled through the filter, you will need to run the pump for slightly longer (roughly 2 hours in summer).

I would like to know if the Zodiac Flopro e3 is suitable for a magna pool magnesium and potassium system?

1 answer

Mick the poolguy

In theory any pool pump is designed with salt water in mind (Either regular salt or magnesium) so you don't need a specialized pump for a certain type of salt water.

Disconnect pool cleaner, remove skimmer basket and pump basket and test for suction, likely plastic or blockage somewhere.

Dont' run permanently like this

Adrian here, hello Zodiac official,
My 3/4-year-old zodiac e3 pump is making a grating noise and its gradually getting worse. What could this be?

2 answers
Grant f
Grant f

I think you could have a bearing on the way out get it looked at before it goes completely or you could damage the motor or worse still burn it out

Zodiac
Customer C.Zodiac

Hi Adrian, This could be caused by the bearing or the impeller. As it's still under warranty we would suggest you take the unit to your nearest Zodiac Warranty Agent to examine in detail. If you're unsure, you can always call our After Sales team on 1300 763 021 or email apac.aftersales@zodiac.com for help.
