Everyone is going green and wants energy efficient pools. If you want to do your part for the environment this article will talk about some things that you can do to make sure your pool is functioning efficiently.
Energy Efficient Pools – Do You Have One?
If you have an energy efficient pool, you won’t have as big of an energy bill throughout the month, but if your pool is an energy monster, you need to get into action and start making some changes with your pool.
Variable Speed Pool Pump
Having a pump that runs continually is not energy efficient, but you also need to make sure that your pool is clean. You cannot leave your pump off for long periods of time or you could create major problems because of dirt and debris.
If you reduce your pump’s RPM you will be able to get less electric draw so if you use a variable speed pump, it will help you save more money, you can have it on more and you won’t have to bother with turning it on and off. If you already have a swimming pool and your pool equipment is a little outdated, Premier Pools & Spas recommends upgrading your pool pumps because when you have a new quality variable speed pump your swimming will run more efficiently.
Energy efficient pools use pool covers. These covers will hold in the heat, and have minimal complications when you are taking the cover on and off your swimming pool. Don’t give up on owning a pool cover, remember that you are saving money because you won’t have to heat the pool as much and you are saving money on pool chemicals.
If you can’t be bothered with the pool covers and taking them off and on, you can always look into automatic pool covers. You won’t have to do anything but remember to push a button.
Reduce System Operating Pressure
If you are not very technical, you can always call a pool professional to come help you with this step. Having the proper system pressure can help you purse a great deal. Don’t leave this out when you are looking through your energy efficient checklist.
