Save Energy, Save MONEY

Electricity bills are often a daunting time for most of us – and that obviously includes the cost of running a pool. But there are many things you can do to reduce this cost and save yourself hundreds of dollars a year.

A top tip is to replace your single speed pump with a multi (or variable) speed pump. They’ve been engineered to significantly reduce high electricity consumption and CO2 emissions.

The energy-efficient pumps we stock have a variable speed motor with 3-speed settings, which allows owners to set the pump at a low, energy-saving flow rate. The pump uses almost 80% less energy than when operating at a standard high flow rate speed. It won’t take long before it well and truly pays for itself.

Other tips to save money and achieve an energy-efficient and eco-friendly pool include:

  • Replace halogen lights with LED pool lights: LED’s use 85% less power and have an impressive life span of over 70,000 hours
  • Use a pool cover: This will reduce water loss by up to 97% and save up to 50% on heating costs.
  • Run pool filtration on a timer and reduce running time during winter: When it’s colder there is less chemical demand so less chlorination is required.
