3 Tips For Keeping Your Pool Environmentally Apropraite

As time continues a pool in hot climate areas is slowly shifting from a want to a need. It use to be that every neighborhood had it's pool and that was it. In recent times this has changed. It seems that everyone has or is installing a pool. This new found habit isn't a problem, the problem is becoming the way we use them. Below are some tips on how to make your pool more environmentally sound.

1. Switch to a Greener Cleaner

Chlorine is the most commonly used chemical to clean pools, mainly because it works so well. But, did you know that chlorine is considered a pesticide by the Environmental Protection Agency? It can be harsh on hair, skin, and eyes, and misuse can result in illness, injury, or worse. If not handled properly, chlorine can be very dangerous. It can also wreak havoc on the plants and animals in your backyard. If it gets onto your grass or flowers it could end up killing your backyard.

2. Install a Heat Pump

Solar heaters are a great, green option, but they may not be necessary in all climates. If you live in an area with warmer air, or in an area where the water only needs to be heated a little, a heat pump is the greenest way to go. Heat pumps use minimal energy because they don’t actually generate any heat: they draw thermal energy from the air and transfer it into the water. Although a pump may seem like something small it will be used thousands of times. Over the years these pumps consume countless energy. 

3. Cover Your Pool

Eco-conscious pool owners know that the simplest and cheapest way to conserve water and energy is to cover their pool when they’re not using it. Pool covers keep heat in and debris out, and also discourage water from evaporating out. Whether it be a DIY pool or if it is one of the custom pools PensacolaSealing heat in means you’ll use less energy heating your pool. Keeping debris out means you’ll use less energy filtering your pool. More water staying in your pool means using less water to refill it.

The world is changing. These changes are not all bad. There is nothing wrong in getting a pool but first make sure it is a good option for the environment.

Backyard pool.
