Aquamotion SMART™ Variable Speed ECM Pumps

AquaMotionSMART systems operate at 10-33% less power consumption than the leading competitors. Lowest energy consumption means greater savings on energy costs. The Einstein’s unique Night Set Back feature automatically lowers its output at night to conserve energy.

Lowest Power Consumption, Advanced Technology

These pumps represent the latest innovation in electronically commutated motors (ECM circulator technology). They use a permanent magnet motor design and variable speed technology to adapt automatically to system demand. Infinitely variable speeds means optimized system performance while drawing the least amount of energy possible.

The Comfort and Savings of Instant Hot Water


Hot Water Recirculation Systems: For Retrofit & New Construction

The Problem: How long do you wait for hot water? 30 seconds, 1 minute, longer?

The Solution: Install an AquaMotion recirculation system. Systems are available for hot water tanks or tankless plumbing.

The Benefits: Save Time, Save Hot Water, Save Energy, Save Money

How Does It Work?

A pump at the tank or tankless heater, or installed under the sink, forces the lukewarm water from the hot supply line into the cold supply line. If a dedicated return line is used it returns the lukewarm water to the heater. An ON DEMAND button/motion sensor or app can also activate the system and increase savings even more.

Pumps, and Accessories

Hot Water with Recirculation Systems offer the comfort and savings of Instant Hot Water with Recirculation. 

The Problem: How long do you wait for hot water when you turn on the faucet? 30 seconds, 1 minute, 2 or 3 minutes, longer? While you wait, a home with 5 taps can waste up to 15,000 gallons of tempered water down the drain. You pay for this potable water, wasted energy and sewage fees. A hot water recirculation system can help!

The Solution: When you install a proven, award winning AquaMotion hot water recirculation system you get a variety of benefits including hot water comfort at every faucet. No more waiting, save thousands of gallons of water a year! There is a system is available for every type of installation, hot water tanks or tankless, indoor or outdoor, on demand, dedicated return line or single line system. Read more about Hot Water Recirculation. 

The BenefitsWith a hot water recirculation system, you get hot water comfort at every faucet, you save time with “no more waiting” hot water and you save lots of water! You can save 12,000 – 15,000 gallons of water per year, so you save energy, utility and sewer bills, you save money. Save energy with a timer system and save even more with an “ON DEMAND” System.

Super Efficient, Dependable with a Green ECO-Cartridge™

AquaMotion’s innovative design created a pump line with the lowest power consumption. This is based on actual amp draw comparisons with published Underwriters Laboratories data of comparable PSC motor or ECM pumps on the market. The PSC design features the only field replaceable and field flushable Green ECO-CARTRIDGE™. This cartridge is the heart of every circulator and contains all moving parts. The design allows for replacement of the cartridge or by pulling it apart and flushing it and reinstalling it. This is a tremendous advantage in areas of hard water. The design prevents black iron oxide and contaminants from entering into the cartridge. The flushable cartridge extends the life of the pumps and makes them a sustainable product that can double its operating life.

Our History

About AquaMotion

Hans Kuster, President AquaMotion

AquaMotion was created with the vision of designing the most energy efficient, high performance, sustainable circulator line on the market with more benefits and features to meet and exceed customer demands and to compete with the world and US market leaders.

AquaMotion was incorporated in 2002 by Hans Kuster. The Company developed the revolutionary Green ECO-Cartridge™ design which is the heart of every circulator and contains all moving parts. It has the only field replaceable and field serviceable cartridge on the market. Competitive manufacturers have to replace their entire cartridge or pump, increasing the foot print on the environment and doubling the cost to the consumer.  The cartridge design and long life bearings are patented. The design also prevents black iron oxide and contaminants from entering into the cartridge. This PSC pump line offers the lowest power consumption of any PSC motor and the lowest power consumption of any ECM pump.

How did we do it? With the help of the most experienced engineers in the water lubricated pump field. Benno Lebkuchner, formerly Senior VP of Engineering at the market leader in wet rotor circulators joined him at Sparco and then at AquaMotion. Benno and Hans, using their lifetime experience in the hydronic industry began designing the most reliable and energy efficient PSC circulator line.

Michael McNamara joined AquaMotion in 2013 as Director of Engineering. McNamara previously worked as Director of Engineering at Grundfos, Pentair and as VP of Engineering at Taco. McNamara brings experience from these top industry companies.  At AquaMotion he designed many new products, ECM, electronically controlled motor circulators and hot water recirculation valves and systems which keep AquaMotion in front as technology leader in pumps and hot water recirculation systems, including the first outdoor hydronic pump system for tank-less heaters.

Hans Kuster previously was Senior VP at the US market leader in circulators for 21 years. He founded Sparco Inc. of Warwick RI, in 1983, Sparco developed 18 U.S and foreign patents for their products. Sparco became a leading manufacturer of hydronic heating and energy products. They included radiant manifolds, zone valves and the AquaMix proportional water mixing valves. Sparco brand-named his products for the world leader in radiant floor heating, Wirsbo/Uponor, Zurn, Kohler and Grundfos. Hans sold Sparco to Honeywell International in 2000.
