How to have an eco-friendly swimming pool
If you’d like to find ways to make your swimming pool more eco friendly, talk with us for ways to go green with the pool. There are upgrades and updates that can be implemented to make the pool more environmentally friendly and this could save your family money on operating costs as well as maintenance and upkeep costs. Whether you’re looking to reduce water consumption, save money on pool heating, use fewer chemicals or save money on cleaning, here are tips:
- Upgrade to more energy efficient equipment. Switching to a variable speed from a single speed pool pump will save money. A variable speed pump may cost more, but it is more cost effective; many pool owners reap a savings of at least 25% and up to 70% after the first month. Variable speed pumps are programmed to operate at lower speeds for typical water circulation and higher speeds for more taxing tasks such as vacuuming.
- Switch from a manual clock to digital that allows you to program many of the pool’s functions. You will realize greater energy savings if you program the pool pump and other equipment to run during the overnight hours when the cost of electricity is less. Whether you’re running a swimming pool, a dishwasher or a washing machine, running them during off peak hours saves you money. Many utility companies lower the rates from about 9 pm to 9 am. Run the pool pump at night to save money.
There are many other ways to incorporate money-save, eco friendly and energy efficient options into both your pool and your home to make your family “greener” and to save you money.
