The Good Green Pool

Energy Saving Tips For Your Pool

  • Using a pool cover will reduce heat loss with an energy savings of 50 to 70 per cent, according to the United States Department of Energy
  • Fences, hedges, cabanas and strategic landscaping that shelters your pool from wind will reduce heat loss
  • Decrease your pool heater 8-10ºF when not in use
  • Lower your pool pump speed to reduce energy use
  • Clean your pool regularly as clogged drains and baskets force the pump to work harder
