There are additional ways to make your pool more efficient that are listed below:
Choose the right finish. A darker colored pool absorbs the sun’s rays and that energy helps heat your pool. Not everyone wants a dark finish but if you are trying to decide, that is one way to keep heating costs down.
If you use your swimming pool only on weekends, reduce your heater or heat pump settings by 8-10 degrees during the week.
If leaving for vacation for more than a week, turn off the pool heater or heat pump.
According to the American Red Cross, the most healthy swimming temperature is 78 degrees. Setting your heater or heat pump to maintain a 78 degree or lower temperature will also help conserve energy.
