Take a look at the amazing energy efficient options for pool owners.
Your pool builder or service center should help you with things like what pump, filter and heater to select for your pool. Let’s get started with some choices for each category.
Within the pump category there are multiple options. Wotech has re-introduced a wonderful energy efficient pump that will cost you more up front, however will easily pay for itself over the first few years.
For the most part there are two common types of pool heaters on the market today: Natural Gas/Propane Heaters and Heat Pumps. In general, pool heaters are most commonly used during the beginning and ends of the swim season, adding about a month of swim time to each.
Swimming Pool heat pumps work on the same principle as heat pumps for your home. They condense the heat from the outside air to heat the water. The heat pump device provides heat energy from a source of heat to a destination called a "heat sink". Heat pumps are designed to move thermal energy opposite to the direction of spontaneous heat flow by absorbing heat from a cold space and releasing it to a warmer one.
