Save energy with these pool accessories
Conserving energy is the fastest way to save on swimming pool expenses, slashing the overall cost to maintain your pool. Your pool uses lots of energy to maintain both the filtration functions and temperature of your pool, making sure your pool is ready for you to jump in when you please. But what if I told you that you can save money on your energy bill by a couple simple solutions? Let’s check them out:
A pool cover is a must-have item for every pool owner as it protects your pool from unwanted dirt, leaves, and other substances. But why not get a pool cover that saves you money as well? The solar pool cover absorbs the sun’s rays and helps insulate your pool, keeping your pool water warm and trash free. This simple pool cover immediately puts a huge dent in your energy costs, allowing your pool to run on minimal power when not in use. These solar pool covers can raise your pool’s water temperature as much as 15 degrees and is easy to throw across the water when you’re done using your pool.
Solar sun rings
These neat little sun rings float around your pool and work similar to solar pool covers: they absorb heat. Simply lay these out in your pool and allow them to go to work, converting the energy of the sun into heat to warm your pool. Unlike solar pool covers, these sun rings enable you to use the pool while they are being used, creating little heat spots for your enjoyment. These are also a great way to warm up an inflatable pool since these pools don’t come with heating.
In a time where every dollar counts, these two simple heating solutions let you save on your energy bill without sacrificing the quality of your pool. No one likes a freezing cold pool, so optimize your pool and keep it warm!
