As a homeowner, you’re probably interested in as many ways to save both energy and money as possible. These days, being as energy efficient as you can is attractive for a lot of reasons: we all like to feel like we’re going green while also spending less money. For the average pool owner, saving money with your pool may not be a thought that has crossed your mind. Luckily, we here at Rhine Pools have thought of some ways for you to save money as a pool owner.
Maintaining Your Equipment
If you’re a pool owner, you may forget to check your equipment sometimes. Making sure your equipment is in top shape can also save you a lot of money though. Broken gear will use more energy and cost you a pretty penny as well. Call a professional pool service to have your equipment checked every few months. Some things you may want to focus on are pool filters, your pool pump, and your pool cleaner. Making sure all of these work will ensure that you aren’t overspending on your pool.
Variable Speed Pumps
Variable speed pumps are a great way to save yourself some money when using your pool. Got an older pump? Get rid of it and install a variable speed pump. Whereas single speed pumps constantly exert the same amount of energy–costing you money in the long run–variable speed pumps can change their speed depending on what’s needed.
Get a Solar Pool Cover
We’ve talked about solar pool covers as a heating option before, but they really can save you a lot of money in the long run. Solar covers harness the energy of the sun to keep your pool warm, so you’re not spending money on electricity. Solar covers also offer the same functionality as regular pool covers; that is, they keep your pool clean and free from debris or dirt.
Energy Efficient Products
Look out for products that call themselves energy efficient. Energy efficiency is more popular than ever, so more and more manufacturers are catering to that need. If you find products that are energy efficient, they’ll help you save money!
