Pool Energy Efficiency - Just In Time For Summer!

Summer is upon us!

Finally! We did it! We got through the long winter and spring – time for bon fires, beaches, swim suits and shorts…and swimming pools! There is nothing quite like jumping in the pool on a hot day, but pools are expensive not only to care for, but the increase in your energy bill is very apparent with them too. One simple addition to your pool setup can help keep your energy usage more manageable.

Pool covers! Pool covers help reduce energy costs in more ways than one.

  • 1.Evaporation can drop your pool level quickly, and force you to raise your water usage to have to fill it back up.  Put your cover on whenever the pool is not being used to help slow evaporation.
  • 2.Keeping your pool warm without a cover can be a challenge. Thermal pool covers help keep heat in and keep cold out to help keep the temperature of your pool more consistent. Solar pool covers not only help to prevent heat from escaping, but they actually help to warm your pool water with nothing more than the sun!
  • 3.Pool pumps are expensive, so the last thing you want is to burn up a pump due to excessive clogging. Pool covers help to cut down on the amount of dirt and debris that ends up in your pool and your filtration system, and thus can help to extend the life of your pool equipment.

Enjoy floating this summer with lower energy bills!
