A residential pool can be a huge expense to a family. With outdated or non-energy efficient equipment, the energy bill may be much higher than necessary. While more American families are searching for ways to cut back on their energy consumption, many may not think about their pool energy consumption. For energy saving tips you can always ask a swimming pool service in North Haledon, NJ or search out articles.

First, your pool pump is a huge energy waster. Many Americans let the pool pump run unchecked for hours. In reality the pool pump need only be active for 5 hours (maximum) during the summer, and 2 hours max in the winter. In New Jersey, you will save money in the winter since you should have properly drained your pool prior to the first freeze. In order to keep your pool pump from costing you an arm & leg, install a pool pump time clock. Also, avoid using your pool pump at the height of energy consumption on a daily basis. Your local swimming pool service in North Haledon, NJ. can help you accomplish these goals very easily.

Second, spend the time checking your pool chemicals, pumps, etc. This is one of the easiest things that you can do to keep your pool from costing you too much. Improperly cleaned and maintained pools will cost a significant amount of money to replace faulty or bad parts, and to get your pool water back to crystal clear.

Covering your pool will keep your heating costs to a minimum. The sun is one amazing heater. A good pool cover will also keep out debris so that you can run your pump less. Also, the water and chemicals in your pool will evaporate much more slowly if the pool is covered!
