Owning a swimming pool increases energy use, which costs money and resources. Here are five ways that you can save money and make your pool as sustainable as possible:
Use alternative, renewable energy.
Use less water.
A pool cover can also reduce evaporation, helping save water. You can also save some water with a low chlorine pool system, which can enable you to drain or backwash your pool less often.
Install an energy-efficient pool pump.
Variable-speed pool pumps alternate between slow and fast flow rates throughout the day to reduce electricity consumption by up to 75 percent. Some companies also offer a significant rebate when you purchase an energy efficient pool pump.
Choose sustainable pool accessories.
There are many sustainable pool accessories, such as solar pool cleaners or environmentally friendly pool toys, swimsuits and sun care products. These products are better for your skin, your pool and your environment.
Choose pool sanitation that uses less or no toxic chemicals.
The Clear Comfort pool system eliminates or reduces chlorine use, limiting the chemicals your family is exposed to and the chemicals you are introducing the the environment.
There are many ways to make your pool more earth-friendly. Are you using any sustainable products in your pool?
