If you own a swimming pool, then you need to provide it with general repairs and maintenance on a constant basis. It can be a lot of work for a homeowner, so it is not uncommon for people to hire an outside service to clean and maintain their pool for them. These service and repair people will have their own equipment to better clean your pool.
Utah Swimming Pool Uses Solar Energy
Utah is one of the top states for solar energy. Swimming pools offer some of the most effective uses of solar energy. While a solar heater doesn’t heat water as well as an electric or gas unit, it’s enough to raise the temperature slightly. During the summer, it could also allow you to use the pool earlier in the day and possibly later at night. In other words, it can help you get a lot more mileage out of your swimming pool.
Another option to cut costs is a simple solar cover. These covers prevent evaporation while allowing the sun’s rays to pass through which serve to keep the water warm without costing you beyond the initial investment.
