Today, Monday April 22nd, is Earth Day. What better way to celebrate Earth Day than to give you tips on “going green” with your swimming pool!
- Switch to a variable speed pump. Variable speed pumps (aka dual speed or 2-speed pumps) are able to run on a high and low setting. Switching your pump to a low speed give you a longer, slower, and more energy efficient pump.
- Cover your pool when it is not being used. The U.S. Department of Energy estimates a pool cover alone can save 50 to 70 percent in heating costs. Adding a solar cover to your pool with save you $$ when trying to keep heat in your pool!
- Switch your cleaner to an eco-friendly one. Natural Chemistry’s Clean & Perfect is a blend of all natural enzymes and citrus based degreasers for effective cleaning of indoor and outdoor living areas. It is non-toxic and environmentally friendly. This cleaner can be used on pool floats, ladders, covers, patio furniture and MORE! (I even use it for cleaning my bathroom & kitchen – I LOVE it! And it smells great too!)
- Use a chemical sanitizing system that does not contain hazardous materials. Going with a chemical system such as Pristine Blue, gives you crystal clear water without the harsh effects of Chlorine. The formula used to make Pristine Blue is EPA registered in ever state and is certified to NSF/ANSI standard 60 as a drinking water additive. In simple terms, if it can be used in drinking water, imagine how safe it is to be used in your pool!
