Enjoying your own private pool or spa right at home doesn’t mean sacrificing your dedication to maintaining a healthy environment. Today, there are a variety of options that allow you to design your pool or spa with environmental responsibility in mind. Keep reading to discover a few of the features you should consider if you’d like to keep your swimming pool “green.”
Energy-Efficient Pool Pumps
Your pool pump plays a vital role in the comfort and appearance of your pool. Because this pump must operate frequently, it can eat up a large amount of energy if it is not efficient. Choosing an ENERGY STAR rated pool pump can reduce the amount of energy it takes to filter your pool’s water by up to 90% and cut your energy costs by $1,000 or more. Today’s most advanced pool pumps offer variable speed technology, rendering them so efficient because they will automatically tailor pumping speed and energy to pump function, providing different pumping speeds for heating, cleaning, filtering, and more.
Pool lights enhance the appearance of your pool while making it safer for use at night. However, traditional light bulbs need a large amount of energy and don’t last very long, requiring frequent replacement and generating excessive waste. LED pool and spa lights offer long-lasting and energy-efficient pool and landscaping lighting in solid or even multi-colored options. Integrating LED lighting into your Tucson pool or spa will ensure many years of bright light without the need to constantly replace old bulbs with new ones.
