Swimming Pool Energy Saving Tips
More often than not, swimming pool owners seem to always ask a common question after their Utah swimming pool installation; “How can I save money owning my pool?” We have come up with several Utah swimming pool tips that you can do yourself to help you save on energy and your utility bill.
Swimming Pool Cover Tips
Many times, swimming pool owners don’t realize the energy savings they can get from their swimming pool cover. An efficient swimming pool cover can reduce the evaporation in your swimming pool by nearly 95% on average. It is best to always keep your Utah swimming pool cover closed when not in use. By not doing so, the average swimming pool can lose over an inch of water ever week in the summer.
Swimming Pool Leaks
Utah swimming pool leaks can happen for a variety of different reasons and can be costly if not treated immediately causing your filtration system to run more energy. A few suggestions to identify swimming pool leaks to keep an eye for are:
- Loose tiles and cracks within the swimming pool deck.
- Cracks or damage appearing in the bond beam.
- Changes within the soil and or landscaping around the swimming pool or equipment area.
If you suspect your swimming pool has a leak, you should schedule a Utah swimming pool repair appointment immediately, as it could result being very expensive if you wait.
Swimming Pool Pumps and Filters
One of the biggest expenses in operating a Utah swimming pool is the pump and filter itself. Your swimming pool pump should not run 24 hours a day, but rather at least once every 24 hours, ideally every 8 hours if possible. We service many swimming pool that are over sized for the swimming pool and the swimming pool plumbing, which will reduce how effective the swimming pool filter and can result in a shorter lifespan for your plumbing.
