Try out these suggestions to make your pool more environmentally friendly.

Going green extends beyond recycling and turning off your lights when you’re not using them.  In fact, there are many different life changes that you can make to better support the environment.  For instance, if you own a pool, there are steps you can take to make it more environmentally friendly.  Here are some of the tips you should consider.

Pump Efficiency

By using a smaller, more efficient pump, you can save energy while still keeping your pool at a comfortable temperature.  On average, an energy efficient pump will consume 35%-45% less energy than a standard pump.  Additionally, you can save even more energy by cutting down on your pump usage.

Solar Covers

Using a solar cover for your pool helps to prevent your pool water from evaporating, helps your pool water maintain a comfortable temperature, keeps out debris, and helps keep your water chemically balanced.  When used in tandem with pool heaters, solar pool covers can reduce the energy used to heat your pool by up to 50%.

Salt Chlorination System

Not only can switching over to a salt chlorination system cut down on the amount of chemicals you expose your family to, but it can also help the environment.  Because salt chlorination systems require less chemicals, it reduces the amount of chemical waste you produce and can also lead to better air and water quality.
