Following simple tips, like heating your pool only when you’re ready to swim, can decrease the amount of energy it uses.
Skip the Heater During the Heat
During the dog days of summer when the heat is almost too much for outdoor activities, there’s no need to use a heater. Plus the heat will evaporate the water decreasing the chlorine levels and increasing the costs and supplies needed to keep your pool in working condition. To reduce evaporation rates, a pool cover is a good investment. It will prevent most of the evaporation, and keep your pool free of debris while controlling the water temperature.
