You will need to make an investment up front in order to reap savings in the long run.
Options for Upgrading to an Eco Friendly Pool
- Naturally-filtered pools are popular. With a natural pool, your contractor will construct a natural pond adjacent to your pool. This second natural pool acts as a filter to clean the water in which you’re swimming. You will see a reduction in the need for pool chemicals. This is an ideal situation for those with skin sensitivities to pool chemicals.
- Invest in a solar pool cover. These covers provide dual duty. They prevent water loss through evaporation and heat the water. If you want to heat the pool water, look for the most economical method you can afford to have installed. Solar panels are an up front cost, but pay for themselves rather quickly. .
- The placement of water return jets in your hot tub or spa can add to, or subtract from, the operating costs. In many instances jets are placed a few inches from the surface of the water. This means the heat will dissipate quickly, meaning you will be spending more to heat the water. Ask us about redirecting the jets so the heated water is directed toward the bottom of the pool where it will help to warm it faster.
Investing in a swimming pool cover and using with regularity will help you cut back on the amount of chemicals needed. The cover will help slow the rate of evaporation of the pool water. The cover will also save you time and money on pool cleaning services.
