More Ways to Save
Energy Efficient Spa & Pool Products
The following inexpensive upgrades and additions can save you valuable time and money on your spa and pool care:
Energy-Efficient Pool Pump Motor (EEPPM)
The electric pump motor powers your pool's filtration system. Because it consumes more energy than any other pool mechanism, it can also yield the greatest energy savings. Next time you need to replace your pool pump motor (every five or six years), consider an energy-efficient pool pump motor (EEPPM). EEPPMs use copper and better magnetic materials to reduce electrical and mechanical losses. As a result, they are longer lasting and more efficient than standard pool pumps.
TIP: When you're installing a new motor, make sure your pump is sized properly or it will consume more energy than necessary for your pool's needs. Talk to your pool consultant about pool equipment sizing requirements.
Heating a pool without a cover is like heating a house without a roof. If your pool or spa is heated, a pool cover is one of the best energy-saving investments you can make. It will lower your pool heating costs as much as 50%, reduce water evaporation, and cut down on chemical costs.
Heat Pump Water Heater
A heat pump water heater is much more efficient than gas or standard electric pool heaters. Though more expensive, a heat pump water heater can also be used to meet your space-cooling or air-conditioning needs while it heats your pool or spa, thus reducing your overall energy costs.
