Speck Badu EcoM3 Pool Pump
The Badu® EcoM3 is another example of Speck Pumps innovations to meet world energy and environmental challenges. The Badu® EcoM3 uses a state of the art permanent magnet brushless DC motor controlled by advance logic electronics. This technology greatly decreases the operating cost, lowers energy usage, and reduces noise. Perfect match for most residential pools ranging from 10,000 to 25,000 gallons. The Badu® EcoM3 continues to set standards for the future by using 100% recyclable "environment friendly" plastics. Please note: Optional Remote that is pictured is no longer available.
Hi, I have a Marathon electric Variable speed pump m/n imPower 5SME29DFT001 which is a 1 hp 3450 rpm (max) 208-230VAC pump. It was recently badly stressed during a lightning storm in the Upstate of SC and is basically toast. I need a replacement pump. Your Speck Badu EcoM3 Pool Pump PART # 2092136013 is on sale right now. I think we have a 2-1/2 inlet line and we have a DE filter downstream. With that info can you tell me if your Speck Badu pump is a reasonable replacement ? Thx --- John
Hi, John. This pump is no longer available and has been replaced with the Badu EcoM3 V 1.65 THP - IG135-V165T-000.
How loud is the Bado EcoM3 at the three different speeds? Do you have any indication of decibels?
You will need to call Speck for a decibel rating, but that pump is quite on all three speeds.
is this the same controller that was used on the Marathon IM Power motor. If so, can I purchase the controller only?
Good afternoon David, You probably had the Badu Touch II, Programmable Controller - Speed for Time & Day - 5880500505 if so this unit is no longer available.
How much power does this pump pull from 220 volts running at 2600 rpm? I would like to know in kilowatts, but I can do the calculations in amps.
Hi, At 2600 RPM this pump uses .500 kW.
do they make120 volt 1 hp vs pool pump
Hi Robert, There is not a 120 volt version of this pump.
do they make one for 115volts badu ecom3v speed pump
They only make it in 220V.
1) I don't see the energy star associated with this product. Does this mean is does not qualify for true energy star savings? 2) Is the difference between the 3M and 3MV that the 3M has 3 preset speeds and the 3MV can be set at a range of speeds that the owner determines? Thank you
Hi JB, This pump is "Energy Star" rated according to the Speck Energy Star Pumps. The difference between the EcoM3 and EcoM3 V is the sophistication of the controls. The EcoM3 only has (3) preset speed and the EcoM3 V you can set the speed of the pump.
I have the Badu EcoM3 1HP 3 speed Pool Pump. The control panel with the 3 speeds has deteriorated and I can no longer change the settings. Always on low. The sun ruined the control panel. I need a new one and cannot find a part number. The second question is there anyway to have the medium speed on permanently? How about the remote control for this pump? Virgil
Hi Virgil, The motor along with the remote for this pump is not available as a replacement.
How much would you save on energy over standard pool pump? Could you mail the pump through the US post office?
Hello Mike, This pump will lower your operating cost up to 80% of what you currently spend to run your pool. There is no specific answer to "How much would you save on energy?" as there is no "standard" to any pool pump. If you require additional information on the Badu EcoM3 1 HP 3 Speed Pool Pump, you can visit or contact Speck by clicking on the link. we only ship via UPS and not through the US Postal Service.
Need : Easy fit VS 3.45 HP 230v. Please let me know price.
Hello Jose, I was unable to find any specific information on an easy fit VS. Do you have a model or part number? What pump are you trying to match this up with?There are 4 different model which I have listen below:IG315-V345T-0SPIG315-V345T-0DYIG315-V345T-0WFIG315-V345T-0DG
The description indicates it is DC motor Is that stand for Direct current?. Can you provide Installation Instruction? Does the warranty provided by you or by the manufactures in Germany?
Hi Laz, DC does indicates direct current. The installation instructions is provided in the Speck Badu Ecom3 Owners Manual. Speck USA handles warranty claims.
Does this pump work with direct DC solar pv?
Shawn, I'm sure it will as long as the pump power supply is 220v. You can call Speck Tech Support at 800-223-8538 to verify.
What is the difference between this pump and the Ecom3 V?
Hi Kent, The EcoM3 has 3 different speeds it can be set to where the Ecom3 V is a true variable speed pump where it can be set at a full range of RPM's / Speeds any setting between 1600 to 3450 RPM's.
Would this pump work for a pond fountain? If yes, how many gph?
This pump would work for a fountain. You would just have to clean the basket when debris gets in. The Gallons Per Minute are best represented here with this chart. There would some other variable such as plumbing size and how far away the pump is ( Total Dynamic Head ) .
I never heard of Speck Pumps/Motors. Is it American or Chinese or .....? Just curious. Thank you, Dale Johnson
It is American. Made here in Jacksonville, Fl. Their customer service number is 1-800-223-8538 if you have any further questions.

Screwdriver, Adjustable Wrench, hack saw & PVC cement
We live near the ocean and a pump's ODP (open drip proof) motor just don't last. So I bought a variable speed TEFC (totally enclosed fan cooled) motor and pump. Installation was fairly simple:
1.) Disconnected old pump wiring ( obviously I turned the power off first, otherwise I wouldn't be typing). Screw driver and channel locks.
2.) Cut the piping to the old pump. Hack saw. Original installation had no unions.
3.) New pump inlet was 1 7/8" lower than original pump. I put a 16X16" concrete stepping stone on top of my old slab and this was the perfect height for the new pump inlet.
4.) The pump has unique unions. I add two standard PVC unions into the old piping, so in the future it will be easy to remove, and plumbed the piping back together.
5.) Did not need to mess with the wiring. The old wiring/ conduit had plenty of slack to reconnect.
6.) Turned the power back on. New pump is super quiet. Looking forward to saving some energy.
(5 out of 5 stars) Super Efficient / Quiet

Pros: efficient and quiet
Old pump was using 7 amps per leg. This one running at 2800 rpm using 2 amps per leg and you can barely hear it. Medium speed runs my salt system, solar panels and vacuum. Low speed is not enough flow for my salt system but that's fine saving a good amount of money on medium speed.
(3 out of 5 stars) Almost Great - but I understand

Pros: Great energy savings, Very Quiet, Manually selectable speeds
Cons: Rather costly, lack of control, documentation inadequate
Let me start off by saying this absolutely is a fantastic pool pump. There simply is no question that here in north Florida with our extended swim season, the energy savings can pay for the pump in a very short time - maybe as little as a year. Having said that, here's the little problem that keeps me from giving this a higher score: I bought this pump to replace a previous Badu pool pump - I thought it was the same model, but it turns out it was not. The old pump was a Badu EcoM3 V while this one as it turns out, is a Badu EcoM3. Silly me - how could I have overlooked the missing V? The difference is significant. The original model allowed adjusting each of the three speeds (High, Medium, Low) over a range of possible speeds to allow for your pool's specific needs. Far more important as it turned out, in the original model, you could select the normal programmed running speed. In my pool, due to the head pressure requirement of our solar panels, it was necessary to run the pump in medium speed after its initial high speed start to establish a prime. The new pump is not programmable. When started, it runs for two minutes on high and immediately switches to low. At low speed, the pressure would not allow flow to the roof-mounted solar cells, and far worse, it wasn't enough flow to satisfy the minimum flow requirements of my Chlorine generator (salt pool). As a result, I had to purchase the Badu remote control, thus nearly doubling the cost of replacing my pool pump A little more clarity on Badu's website might have prevented this problem, but that just wasn't available. It is a great pump, but caveat emptor - make sure you know what you're buying

Pros: Quiet, easy to install
Cons: Low speed, may not be able to run your heater
Check your pool heater to figure out how much pressure you need for it to turn on. It will only run for 2 hours then kick to the lowest setting. I would highly recommend buying the controller unit, but with the increased price it might be better to purchase the 1.65 hp true variable pump.
