Hayward® Expands Tristar® Pump Lineup Adding Ultra-capable Tristar Xl

Commercial-grade pool pump brings powerful design and versatile performance to residential applications 

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – September 13, 2022 -- Hayward Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: HAYW) (“Hayward” or the “Company”), a global designer, manufacturer, and marketer of a broad portfolio of pool equipment and technology, today introduced the TriStar XL high performance pump, the newest addition to its flagship award-winning TriStar line of equipment. The XL model is Hayward’s most powerful residential pump, providing commercial-grade performance geared specifically toward larger pools, feature-rich builds and complex pool pad configurations.

With its impressive WEF efficiency ratings score of 9.9 @ 115V (7.2 @ 230V), the new TriStar XL pump is the next step up from Hayward’s TriStar VS 950 (2.7HP) pump with 2” x 2/5” unions, providing significant savings to pool owners on their annual energy bills. Among other features, the TriStar XL leverages its 2.5” x 3” unions and extra- large strainer basket for more power and flow.

Beyond its sheer size and power, TriStar XL boasts an array of versatile features to benefit larger pool pads. Most notably, the oversized strainer basket can be detached from the unit and mounted remotely, thanks to standard 3” ANSI flanged connectors. The digital control interface can also be rotated in four directions or installed remotely, providing even greater setup versatility for installers and owners alike.

The XL model is equipped with a totally enclosed fan-cooled (TEFC) motor, dual-voltage (115/230V) capability, and a chemical-resistant Viton® seal. It’s also built for seamless compatibility with Hayward’s top-rated Omni® automation platform, providing simplified control from virtually anywhere.

“The TriStar XL expands upon TriStar’s already impressive product lineup giving pool owners more versatile and powerful pool performance without sacrificing energy efficiency,” said Matt Kimball, Hayward VP of Product Management and Marketing. “A win-win with greater pad setup flexibility plus a whole lot of extra muscle.”

Like all products in Hayward’s trade-exclusive Expert Line®, TriStar XL high performance pumps are available only from pool professionals.
