According to Green Living Online, With just over eight million pools in the U.S. and more than 600,000 in Canada, there is a growing awareness that single owner pools may not be the most environmentally friendly form of recreation. They use a lot of electricity and gas with pumps to circulate the water through filters and heaters, typically running 24 hours a day. This is unnecessary when the average pool owner only spends about an hour a day swimming.
Following are some important, money-saving conservation tips from us, the Ultimate in Pool Care, to you, the pool owner. As you know, we can all do our part to help and save money while we are at it!
Use your swimming pool filter and automatic swimming pool cleaner during off-peak hours (peak hours are 12 – 6 PM).
Use your swimming pool cover: 70% of heat loss is due to evaporation.
Replace old swimming pool and spa pumps and motors with new efficient ones.
Shorten the operating time of both your swimming pool filter and automatic swimming pool cleaner.
Keep your swimming pool equipment clean and lubricated.
Keep your swimming pool and spa filtration systems clean for optimum flow rates.
Keep your water chemistry properly balanced.
Keep your swimming pool temp low.
