Everyone wants to save money, especially when it comes to utility bills. After all, there’s no sense in paying the utility companies more money than necessary. But the energy savings aren’t just for inside your home: they’re applicable to your pool too. 

Keeping the pool water just the right temperature, operating underwater lights and water features, and ensuring that the pool pump and filter are working properly all take energy – which you’re paying for. The thing is, many pools have equipment and systems that are inefficient and therefore waste more energy than necessary. 

The good news is that there are ways to make your pool more energy efficient. 

Replace the Pump

Circulating the water in your pool is made possible thanks to the pump. The pump then moves the water through the filter which keeps your pool water clean. Different pump speeds are more efficient than others. More specifically, variable pool pumps are 90% more energy efficient than single-speed pumps. Plus, they also last longer and have quieter motors. 

You could also have your Austin pool builder switch to a heat pump if you heat your pool with a heater that runs on propane or natural gas. Heat pumps last longer and are more cost-effective. 

Add a Pump Timer

A pump timer can be used to automate the filtering process. That way you can automatically prepare your pool without having to run all the time. For instance, if you like to swim in the evening or on weekends, having an automated pump can give you plenty of energy benefits. Call an Austin pool to have automation installed.
