Fine-tune the way your pumps and filters operate to prevent your pool from wasting energy and money.

Swimming pools and spas guzzle energy as well as water. The main use of energy is for pumping water through the filter, but heating, cleaning appliances, pool lights, and chlorine or saltwater sanitation treatment systems require extra energy as well.

There isn’t a ‘one–size–fits–all’ approach to making your swimming pool or spa more energy efficient, but we have listed some projects you can embark upon until you’ve got it right.
