How to Make Your Pool Energy Efficient and Eco-Friendly

22,Jul 2021

It is important to help lessen your impact on the environment. One way you can do this is by making your pool energy-efficient and environmentally friendly. This not only good for the environment but for your wallet as well!

Methods for a More Environmentally Friendly Pool

There are a variety of ways to help make your pool more energy-efficient and environmentally friendly. Here are some of our favorite methods. 

Natural Windbreaks

To help you save water by preventing evaporation, you can install windbreaks. These can be hedges, trees, or man-made windbreaks such as walls or solid fences. When you block the wind from hitting your pool water, you can prevent the wd from increasing evaporation. This will help prevent water loss and your need to refill the pool often.  

Pool Covers

Another great way to prevent evaporation is by using a pool cover. Evaporation is the main way your pool loses energy, so a pool cover is a great way to reduce this waste and help reduce evaporation. 

Natural Heating Methods

Nothing beats heated pool water on a cool evening or for your early morning laps. To help heat your pool without increasing your energy bill, consider a solar pool cover. This is a natural way to heat your pool, harnessing the power of the sun for insulation. 

Modify Pool Plumbing

Is your pool plumbing working as efficiently as possible? If not, it could be wasting energy and making your pump work harder than it needs to. Evaluate your plumbing and consider replacing narrow pipes or reducing the number of tight turns in your pool plumbing system to help take the stress off your pump. 

Larger Filters

Another way to make your pool run more efficiently is to use a larger pool filter. With a larger filter, you provide more surface area for the water to pass through. This allows your pump to move the same amount of water with less effort. This means not only will your pump use less energy, but it will also last longer, saving you money in the long run. 

Use LED Lighting

LED lights use only 42 watts compared to incandescent lights, which use 300 to 500 watts. Not only will LED lighting save you energy, but it also has a longer lifespan, is low maintenance, and can even provide bright colors and other visual effects to your pool area.
