When you own a pool, you have to think of all the components that go into a swimming pool. There are many ways to go about this, but one thing our team always suggests is taking the sustainable route. This type of equipment is alway evolving, but there are some great option currently out there. They also may be a bit more of a larger investment upfront, but will pay off in the long run.
When it comes to wanting to heat your swimming pool, you may want to consider a solar option. With a solar heating system, your pool is able to jump up a good 10 to 12 degrees in difference of water temperature. Naturally, when the sun goes down the heating system shuts off. However, the best part about this is that there is no continuous electric or energy bill to go along with this heating system. As a South Florida homeowner, we are lucky enough to have the natural heat as a way to keep your swimming pools warm year-round, but it is always nice to ensure that your swimming pool is always warm and ready for swimming. Pool covers are another option that you can add to your pool to help store heat.
When it comes to a pump, homeowners typically choose from a single speed or variable speed pump.
By taking the route of a variable speed pool pump, this option will efficiently use less energy compared to your traditional one-speed pump. Many owners of these newer variable-speed pool pumps are not only enjoying the cut down in costs, but also in noise as they seem to be a lot more quiet.
Lastly, we encourage homeowners to get a cleaner! These are not necessary, but will help to maintain your pools cleanliness and a gorgeous look. It also helps with the ongoing maintenance and wear of the pool. Many homeowners choose to go with an automatic or robotic pool cleaner vs manually cleaning it each day. With an automatic option, it independently circulates the pool while keeping it clean. They also are the most energy efficient. There are other add ons that you can get, but this option is a great place to start.
