According to ENERGY STAR, an ENERGY STAR certified pool pump can save you over $300 a year. That’s money that can be used to buy yourself a new bathing suit or poolside lounge chairs! The difference between an ENERGY STAR certified pool pump and a conventional pool pump lies in their speed. A conventional one-speed model operate always operate at high speeds, which is unnecessary during filtration. ENERGY STAR models are available as two-speed or variable-speed models, which means that their speeds are adjusted to suit specific pool tasks.The Benefits of an Energy Efficient Pool Pump and Pool System Pro Pool Repair png

Along with installing a better pool pump, which Pro Pool Repair can do for you, you can also make your pool energy efficient by installing a pool timer, which allows you to choose filtration times. According to FPL, the recommended time for running a pool pump is 6 hours a day in the summer and 4 hours a day in the winter. You may also want to consider using a robotic pool cleaner versus your pool pump, since these types of cleaners run on low-voltage electricity. Purchasing a pool cover can also aid in conserving money and energy since a pool cover can help keep debris out of your pool (and therefore reduce your need to run your pump), helps conserve water, and minimizes the need for chemical use.

Finally, one of the easiest and most important ways to make your pool energy-efficient is to keep up with regular pool maintenance. That means, backwashing your filters if and when necessary and following any recommended manufacturer’s instructions. This also includes keeping your pool at the right temperature. Of course, if you’re likely to forget to do regular pool maintenance, it is recommended to consider hiring a pool maintenance company.
